    Here is Daddy Buff Orp
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Here is the mama and the 4 gray ones are Grace's. She is an EE (mom) and Lance's (Dad) Babies they are 3 weeks old tomorrow. The one with light face is a boy I assume because his brother (light gray one) looked the same when he was his age. And so I assume the girls are the ones with the reddish faces. [​IMG]
    [​IMG]Why is he different? Could he be part BR? I assumed the BO was daddy because of no barring. I did have a BR rooster that I ended up getting rid of. He is the only one that looks like this. If he is part BR that explains why his his contantly fighting the others boys. Here is his brother the same age. They are 7 weeks old on Thursday.[​IMG]Thank you so much for looking and any comments or advice would be great.....

    An EE being an EE, could be carrying any color. So that odd EE chick is probably just an EE x Orp. All of them are good looking birds [​IMG]
