Experts, could these be Buff Orpington chicks?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Picked these girls up at Tractor Supply, no breed was listed. Feathers are coming in a very pale cream color. These are my first chickens so I am curious what breed they could be. Any guesses? I am in Wisconsin, so I'm sure they are a cold hearty breed if that helps narrow choices. No feathers on legs or feet.

Those look to be Red Sexlinks (AKA Golden Comets, Cinnamon Queens, Red Stars, ISA Browns, etc.).

It's a sexlinked cross of a Rhode Island Red rooster on Rhode Island White hens (females hatch red, males hatch white). Excellent prolific brown egg layers.

Currently 30 guineas & 49 chickens. Australorp, Buff Orpington, Barred Rock, Rhode Island Red, Easter Egger, Dark Cornish, Brown Leghorn, & American Gamefowl.

Raising 100% Grass-Fed Black Angus beef in the beautiful Missouri Ozarks. No grain, GMOs, antibiotics, or hormones. Lots of green grass and sunshine, the way beef is supposed to be raised.
