    Bought these a few weeks ago at Atwood's. They were chipmunk colored and have transformed to these. Thanks[​IMG][​IMG]

    Thank you all, I am still wondering how they ended up at Atwood's of all places. For those of you not familiar, Atwood's is a ranch and cattle supply chain similar to Tractor supply stores.

    It's not all that unusual, actually -- many of the retailers will end up with seemingly exotic breeds from time to time whether by design or accident. Hatcheries often offer great deals on overhatch assortment buys, etc - which is one way the odd and end type breeds can end up in such places. Also, with the growing popularity of chicken keeping, many retailers are becoming more adventurous in their breed selections they order.
