(cochins)The red, white,and buff all look the same How can I tell the difference? (some are going to my sisters and I want to make sure I'm sending the right ones .) [​IMG]

    The white should not look the same at all! The reds should be a little darker than the buffs! If you mess them up, can you exchange them when they are a little bigger? Good luck, I bet they are cute![​IMG]
