    I was given these two little ones buy a rescue I work with. Anyone have an idea as to what breed, cause I haven't a clue. The pics are not the best. They usually let me pick them up, but tonight they did not want to be picked up. Thanks.

    I saw bantam Rhode Island Reds in a lot of the hatchery catalogs . Could they be RIRs ?

    They are not rhode islands for sure. Your chickens have white earlobes.
    They look like a type of bantam breed but I can't tell what. Are they dark brown, or black?
