    I bought five buff orp chicks from TSC on Monday and they are suddenly sprouting white wing feathers! I don't remember my other buff orps having white wing feathers. I think they were buff colored.

    I searched my computer, but can't find any photos of my buff orp chicks at that age. Does anyone have any buff orp photos of chicks at about five days old, after the wing feathers have sprouted?

    Thanks!

    I have 20 (2 1/2 week old ) buffs in my brooder right now and they do not have any white feathers. I am still trying to learn how to post a pic in the message. Sorry that I am not able to post pics to show you.
