    So, last one. I havent been able to figure this one out. I am pretty sure I am getting light brown eggs from them. There are two that look the same. No white eggs and I have caught the two white hens in the nest boxes...but I cannot say 100% they are laying.

    I would have to guess that they are white Plymouth Rocks.

    They don't look like rocks to me... [​IMG]

    This is a white rock - and something seems weird with your girls' tail feathers

    Quote:She doesnt really have any [​IMG] Everyone is in some various stage of molting. The other one is missing back feathers, Im guessing partly from molting and partly from the rooster... so I have some with no tails, some with only like 3 tail feathers, some with just thinned feathers all over. Its interesting! LOL

    Quote:LOL yea, there are feathers everywhere! They were picking a little bit too when I got them, but that has seemed to pretty much stop. I dont notice anything new regarding that. I have noticed a few girls with their elbows I guess? bare haha some of them have fluffy spots from the downy feathers sticking out. And then we have some with no tails!
