    Me and my dad wen to farmers feed and seed today! When we came in the door they had laying hens for sale, roosters, and chicks.

    I got three more chicks, 2 buff brahmas and 1 Rhode Island red. Now I have 11 chickens.

    Then my dad said we are going to make the coop bigger!

    I'll post pictures as soon as I take some.


    All of them -

    Does one of them have green on it's head? Hatcheries sometimes do that to the roos to tell them apart.

    Great looking chicks and nice pics. Good luck in your breeding, I always say, what you put into your pets is what you will get out of them...well, like eggs! [​IMG]

    My RIR's didn't have any white in them what so ever. Now I'm wondering if my babies are RIR's afterall. How positive are you that the one chick is a RIR? Curious because of what I paid for them.
