This chick was solid black, and sold to me as a Black Australorp, along with two others who are also turning red in front. I named this girl Robin, for obvious reasons.
This chick was sold as a Buff Orpington. She blended right in, with the exception of a slightly rosier color, hence the name Rosie. The Buff Girls are big and golden, she has a closer much darker feathering and is lighter built. No idea. She was a solid yellow chick like the others.
This is a Buff Orpington girl. Some of the buffs are light, a couple are darker... This one has black barring on her neck and wing feathers. Another has a reddish brown color on her head.
I definitely got a surprise grab bag of chicken!
It is curious!
