Hi There! My first chicken adventure has been a real learning experience. But I was looking for anyone's input on my flocks breeds. I had purchased them from a feed store and I can't say I was expecting them to know exactly what the chickens are... I had purchased Two Buff Orpingtons, two Black Orpingtons and Four White Leghorns. Well, the only thing I think they got right was the two Buffs (my sister has one, and what we thought was a leghorn. Well, her "Leghorn" has feathers on her legs!) We love them anyway! But the more that Alice and Meryl (the Black Orpingtons) grew the less convinced of their breed I was. First thinking the possibility (as low as it was due to the rarity) I thought I had some Laced Wyandotte or Orpington. Well, as of this past week I'm pretty sure these girls are PBRs due to the way their feather pattern is filling in. As for my Leghorns; I mentioned my sister's has no crown, but does have the feathered legs...makes me think she is some sort of mix. I think only one of my white ladies is an actual leghorn. She not only looks the part; but she seems to be my most sketchy lady. As for my "big girls" Hennifer and Henelope; they were the biggest when we got them; from my research they may have only been maybe three days older than the rest. But they have been GIANTS for a few weeks now. They are much wider than any Leghorn I know; and my coworker, who has had a few different breeds thought they may be White Rhode Islands??? Any input would be appreciated. I do not yet have a picture of the feather legged "leghorn" but I will work on it! TYIA!!!
