    Just for fun, guess the breed. I know what they are supposed to be but was a bit surprised be the way they looked when they arrived, so we will see if all you breed guessing experts will get the right answer.

    Info:
    From Ideal Hatchery
    Single comb
    White nails
    Black and yellow legs
    Clean legged
    Standard sized
    Both are supposed to be pullet chicks

    Well, different lines of the breed look different. But their Austrolorps just the same. :)

    A silkie would be a surprise but that's not it either. Also not a barred rock. Another clue, I didn't even know they had this breed until I called to change my order and the sales rep suggested these. They are supposed to be perfect for Midwest weather, friendly, and good layers. They are also tough and have been said to fight off predators instead of running away.
