I've been waiting my whole life to have chickens, and I've finally worn my husband down enough to get some We got them all from TSC last Friday so they are now about 5 days old, but they were only a day old in these pictures. The two yellow ones in the first picture were labeled "straight run bantams" and based on what I can find I believe they are white silkies, yay! The others are from a tub of "straight run" Black Sex Links, and if I chose right they are all females. We also have 5 Orpingtons that I believe are all buff, also straight run. (We named them all girl names in hopes that we won the straight run lottery and got all females, but we are aware that is most likely not the case... the Orps are Queen Elizabeth (shes currently the boss), Rue (the tiniest), Emily, Georgia, and Beatrix (the lover). I am going to try to get pictures of them tonight I know this is a questions for a different thread but - I noticed two of my black stars vents looks a little red/swollen and someone had a yellow runny poo, although I don't know if it was them or not. It doesn't look "pasty" per say, but just different than the others. I was wondering if the vent just looks more apparent because they're black feathered with light skin? I'll add my question to the other boards if it doesn't clear up in the next day or two, and i plan to wipe their bottoms just in case. Thanks!
