I've been sitting in the greenhouse staring at my girls. They are feisty & healthy but I can't figure out what everyone is. I decided to ask if anyone else ordered from McMurray's hatchery last month - the week of August 20th. I ordered the Brown Layer Collection. I expected it to be heavy on Red/Black Stars but I don't see any Black Stars. I do have a couple of dark red ones - but I'll have to wait to see what they are. Three are barred rocks. Two appear to be partridge rocks. Of course, there is one turken (no guesses there!) and probably a golden laced Wyandotte. I think three might be buff orphingtons but the rest are anyone's guess. Three are black with brown chests covered in black spots (Spotted Sussex?) and one black gal has one white flight feather on each side. A couple look like a photo I found of a Welsummer - but according to their list, they don't have them this late in the year. One red one seems to be feather challenged. She has a few feathers on her wings but she's mostly still down - and no sign of pin feathers. Has anyone ever heard of a bald chicken? All in all, they are a healthy lot - they've survived a few nights which dipped below freezing and we're expecting our first snow tomorrow.
