    Not sure- Brown leghorns or game hens or game hen cross? [​IMG] Whatever they are they are some pretty little hens.

    I thought welsummers at first also, but not with those slate blue legs!

    Well, I can't tell what type comb the one on the left has, and she is more of a red, right? The one on the left is black and gold with a single comb?

    Alright, my guess is, they are both crosses, possibly with an EE. I am going to say something like a RIR for the one on the left, honestly, the one on the right looks to be colored like a black sex link, but since they aren't an actual "breed" not sure you could get the pattern if cross bred. Alright, my 7 y/o just said "hey, that one looks like Raven (our Black Sex Link) so he agrees that the one on the right looks like a black sex link. [​IMG] They could be crossed with a different dark leg breed, too. I have an EE/Golden Campine cross that looks a lot like the one on the right.

    Anyway......I said an awful lot to just say they are mixes. Didn't I. LOL

    thX for the input YALL. but i have to say that these chickens are half the size of any sexlink or rir . i went to the local flea market & say a chicken that looks like the ones pictured,, & i asked what kind it was, he said his was a game hen, & they look the same.

    Those look like gamefowl to me, but I could not honestly tell you which ones.
