There was a mixup at the hatchery and the birds with white turned out to be Cornish Cross. My replacement birds are very obvious Buff Orpingtons and are extremely friendly. They're growing like little weeds.

You have a white Easter Egger.

She's just the sweetest to the rest of the chicks, or at least we hope "she". The buff Orpington brooder I selected them from was straight run. Right now we call her Mama because she will snuggle the tiny bantam chicks and keep them warm. If my leghorn chicks start pecking at the littles, Mama will walk through the middle of them. Montana, (the buff one) again hoping for female, but easily can be called Moe, has taken a huge liking to me. Will perch onto my hand and just hang out in my lap.
