    Okay, so, last year, I bought chicks at TSC and now they're all grown up. I know I have Buff Orpington hens, Red Sex Link hens, and... Mystery-Black-Somethings. The mystery blacks I got straight run, the chicks were identical (no dots on heads) and ended up being half and half, 3 hens and 3 roos. The hens have white leakage, unlike most black sex links which have red leakage. I have no clue what they are. Any guesses? [​IMG]

    And then they hatched out some kids last year, who are also now full grown. Any guesses as to who the mom is for these two roos?

    There's this one:

    And then this one, who is veeery pretty, a beautiful copper color (much brighter than the dull red of the Sex Link hens). He has white legs so we think he's probably a Buff mix, but could this color result from the black and the buff?

    And here's Timmy doing a LOLchicken.

    I love your LOLchicken!! Seriously LOLed at it [​IMG]

    Not sure about your striking copper fella, but your whitish roo looks like a couple I had as a kid that were hatched by red sex-links...

    Quote:don't let the photo fool ya, he's actually a pretty sweet roo, hehe.

    i was wondering if the white one was from the reds... thanks for the opinion [​IMG] it just kinda blew my mind that we got different colors at all, i was expecting all babies to be black. (we also got a pure black pullet and a pure red pullet from that hatch, like cleaned up versions of their mothers.)
