    I think I happened into three anconas. That's what I'm hoping anyway. This pic is not great but maybe someone can tell me if they are anconas. I will try to get better pics but they are not cooperating. IMG_20180304_162258.jpg

    He got them at Tractor Supply in Hartwell, GA. I called but they had no idea what breed they are. He liked them because they weren't all yellow

    Amazing to find them there at a TSC maybe they aren't Anconas but sure could fool me. We do have a thread here for that breed let me find it for you.

    And then to add to the confusion Magpies but they seem to have more color.
