    I just got 5 chickens, here are two photos of two of them. I live in Dubai and am guessing these are a more exotic and native Arabian species. [​IMG]

    I think you're correct in that they're not a standard breed those of us in the West are going to recognize. I don't know what breeds you all have there, or if they're mixed breed feral/village birds.

    I like the funky leg color on the light bird [​IMG]

    I think the first brown hen is some indeginous breed to Dubai, possibly a cream legbar hybrid be aisle of it's colouring. I think the second White hen is a light Sussex x la bresse because it has very little black on its still and neck from the Sussex which suggests its hybrid but also has blue legs just like the la bresse
