In the Brooder
- Jun 10, 2013
I ordered 15 "mixed brown egg layers" from McMurray Hatchery. The only breed that has fuzzy feet in this assortment (according to the description) are the Light Brahmas. These two birds look nothing alike! They did when they were little peeps...but now?? and neither looks like it is feathering out to be a Light Brahma, to my inexperienced eye I was thinking perhaps that one could be the "free rare and unusual chick" that is included in each order. Does anyone know whether Brahma (or Cochin) roosters are friendlier than other breeds? Because it has been my experience in the past that the "freebie" is usually a boy. Any input is appreciated.
