    Hey folks! I'll have more info tonight when i get home from work but I'll get your wheels turning awhile. I was given 4 chickens. They are small. I don't think they are young but more of the Bantam persuasion. The problem...my neighbor was given these from a family that was getting out of chickens and into turkeys. Their existing flock killed one of the new birds and in turn my neighbor asked if we wanted them. They don't know how old OR what they are. Some details: they have feathers on their feet, VERY friendly, make almost no noise, and are small. I'll get a height and better pics and add it tonight. Lastly, they are not laying eggs. I've had them for 3.5 weeks. Any ideas on what these fine ladies are? Pekin, Brahma Bantam, Cochins? any help at all will be great. [​IMG]

    VERY pretty that is for sure! I don't know what breeds they may be. But there will be others along shortly to welcome you here to BYC that will no doubt know the breeds. If you can't wait that long, you can always post this pic in the What Gender section here of BYC....

    Side note: If you look at them, seems like they are always leaning forward...
