    I ordered these from Poultry Farms NWA for $3.50 each and they said they were some kind of rare chicken breed. I wanted to get your thoughts on what breed.

    Those arent chickens , those are peachicks(peafowl)! They all look to be of the Indian blue variety as well.

    What a steal, $3.50 for Peas! Here we pay $30-$40 a piece for lil ones.

    Good luck with them, they are dumber then turkeys the first few weeks of life. Teaching them to eat can be really difficult(lost dozens to not learning despite hours of showing).

    Not being familiar with other bird forms, all I can say is that they sure don't look like chickens to me. They are intriguing though, it'll be fun to see them grow up! [​IMG]

    heehee they're adorable! Oh man I'm so jealous that you got peafowl for 3 bucks! I'm just hoping and praying you arn't in a situation where you can't have loud birds, that would be a bummer.

    Those are definitely peachicks (baby peafowl). What a deal for that price!!!

    They look like they could be India Blues.

    lol sorry guys I lied, I just wanted to see if anyone would start spouting off random chicken breeds. [​IMG] You guys are sharp! Keep it up. They are india blues I got the other day and they were really 20 each, still a good price tho.
