I think I have figured out what these all are but I would love confirmation!
I ordered 3 GLW and 3 Partridge Cochins, with 15 assorted Rares. I live in the hinterlands (one of my neighbors describes getting to our Tiny Town as, "Go to the end of the world (Bangor) and then drive three hours north") and did not understand the shipping logistics nor did I realize that the chicks were not coming from elsewhere in NE but from OH. They arrived in the Hampden sorting facility an hour after the last truck came north, and sat for 18 hours until the next one. Four were DOA and three others did not last until I got home from my training class. Much love to that neighbor who went to the local PO and met the truck at 6:30am, brought the chicks to my coop shed, tended them for an hour, and left most of them happily cheeping in the brooder.
The beige pullet in these pics is my only home girl, out of 6 chicks my broody raised. I suspect she is the one that produced the egg this Tuesday. A fine first effort, at 1.8 oz!
The Brown Leghorn rooster is my TSC 99-cent season-end special from 20 months ago. He was the whipping boy for my similarly-priced Dixie Rainbow brute until I moved him to his own flock of halfling hens this past weekend. (Poor guy spent the first 15 minutes gulping food and fending off exploratory pecks at those lovely earlobes.)
I know the flock includes a White Cochin, two Fayoumis, one GLW, an EE, a Golden Campine, one Ancona, and four dark Cochins (I believe two of the Partridges I ordered and two Blacks). The ones I am not certain of are the left-most rear pullet, behind the WC, which might be a Wellie but has yellow legs, and the one to her right, which is one of two that might be Partridge Penedesencas. Here's a better pic of one of those.
Until I tried to photograph these ladies, I never knew just how uncooperative they can be!
Any suggestions or corrections? I'm only a second-year chicken wrangler. Any and all input/advice is appreciated1
