    Hello all! First post and newbie chicken mama, although I've spent a bit of time reading here on the site the past few weeks.

    Hubby got 16 chicks from Tractor Supply--different breeds. One is a RIR, some are buff Orpington, and some Plymouth Rock. We have two little guys who are buff with black legs and beaks, five toes, and one looks has some leg feathers developing. Buff bantam maybe?

    Here are a few pics.

    Thanks everyone! I'll post some of the rest of the gang later!

    White silkies chicks are pure white, but this is a buff color.

    A little Silkie Chicken. Those are the type of chickens I keep. I got some from Tractor supply this year too. What part of the country are you? I am in western Massachusetts. All the chicks in the bantam bin were silkies around here.
