    No thats how a lot of people put it then there is a BJG Black Jersy Giant, EE: Easter Eggers or GLW golden laced wyandotte

    I do not think the last one is a Ba might be BJG I not sure what the first one is but it's not a BSL

    Are they from a hatchery? They look like mixes to me.

    And just my $.02 here, but it was obvious to me what you meant by ba and bsl and a perfectly good use of the abreviation. I certainly didn't think you honestly thought one of those chooks was a buff anything [​IMG]

    I bought them from TSC this spring from a bin labeled assorted pullets...I really have no idea what I could possibly have. I also got 3 white ones that look like white leghorns...this was the first year I bought from them and will not do it again..not saying they are a bad place to get chicks...but I was too eager for chicks and bought without knowing what it was I was buying! I love them no matter what they are but I was hoping they were BA cause I love my adult BA miss Bella! Although I may find myself becoming a Silkie chicken mom from now on...I just got my first 2 little silkies and LOVE them!! lol!!! [​IMG]
