    A few days ago a couple of chickens, hens I believe, came into our garden, not sure what breed they are. Possibly a malay or asil, if anyone could positively identify them that would be very much appreciated. Thanks :)

    They look like Shamos or Aseels (Asil) hard to tell the difference :/

    I bet the people on the Oriental Gamefowl thread can make a identification for you.

    How tall are they? If there full-grown and there about 36 in. it's a Malay if it is 30 in. it will be a Shamo, well, at least most likely.

    I think they were still in the juvenile stage so probably under the 30 in height

    It's a pair (rooster and hen). My guess is Malay.
