I didn't think to mention that Yes, always look for pink legs when picking out BOs.
Definitely sure they're not BOs now. We might just have to learn about meat chickens real quick. Time will tell. :-X
Does anyone have any thoughts on Mystery Chick who seems to have reddish colored feathers coming in?
Upon closer investigation, I'm starting to get hope they are not a meat chicken (which wouldn't be the end of the world, but that's not what we were going for). Granted, they're only a 1-2 weeks old, but they are in no way more "meaty" than the new chicks I have. I'll post an update in a few days.
Thanks again for all the input!
I ordered ten assorted brown layers from my pet chicken and got five... five! Of these... if they are cornish, I'm very irritated because they are supposed to be layers... I already got one that appears to be a dark cornish... so, six out of ten meat birds in a layer assortment? Hmmmmm. Even if they are sex links, what a cop out for an assortment.
Does My Pet Chicken even have Cornish cross? Do you have pics?
If you ordered assorted brown layers, then they are probably a type of red/gold sexlink. Dark Cornish are not the same thing as Cornish Cross meat birds. Dark Cornish might not be quite as prolific at laying as some other breeds, but they will regularly turn out 3 to 5 brown eggs a week.
Oh really?? Then I believe she is a dark cornish... they have a list of possibilities and dark Cornish is on there. And I am thinking the more I study that golden comet is the breed of the other five. Either way, everyone is pretty and healthy. I just didn't want meat birds because I read they eat lot.
I know this is a 3 year old post, but what did they wind up being? At least according to the date in the top right corner this is a three year old post! my guess on your mystery chic is red or gold sex link
I noticed this was an old post after I posted on it... lol. I googled buff Orpington chicks to try to match up photos and this popped up... so I would love to know the outcome also... haha. And I'm leaning towards golden comet for my batch of five that look like this.
Can I ask you whet breed your mystery chick turned out to be! I have two identical and can't figure it out!!!
