Hi there,

A couple of months ago I was given a couple of chickens that someone did not want as they were moving and I am unsure what they are. Anyone know from the pic? I know they are bantams, are they pekin bantams?

Yes the feet are feathered, fluffy feathers actually.

Could be a pekin cross if the feet are feathered. Pekins are really round to look at

Sorry, may have seemed like a stupid question but you cant see the feet in the photo :)

triple comb, dark hackles = indian.

feather feet, general plumage = pekin

spangled breast and partridge type feather = eb = wyndotte?? needed to know its colour as a chick.

but all is guessing....just a from experience.

She looks like a cross breed to me (but I'm no expert on breeds) but I love her colour. She is sooo pretty!

Thanks guys that helps. They are good layers but will not come anywhere near me even when I have food. Not at all like my other chickens! Maybe one day the will get used to me.
