Dove - I think you got an Australorp/RIR mix (the black one) and for the life of me I don't remember the other 2 that you got! If you describe them I could tell ya - because when I offered to throw in a third, I didn't even see which one you picked.
Thank you Alexis for the beautiful story! So the black pullet is a direct decendent of the rooster in the story? Anyway, the other two chicks were matching. They are shorter with fluffy legs, and colored black and white? They are sleeping and I can't completely remember their color, but they were two contrasting colors.
Oh! Those would be from my cochins! They will be super sweet birds. They were hatched here from my bantam pen, and while a few were all cochin, the Sultan ended up being the surprise Dad to a couple because I noticed extra toes. If yours don't have extra toes, and the feet are more yellow, then they are cochin. The third, probably noticeable larger one, is descended from the rescued rooster. Enjoy them!
