    Here we are going on the third week with my chicks and I still cannot figure out what I have other than 6 HUGE Buff Orps that are growing really fast!!!! Here is a pic of one that has me baffled.... Any guesses???
    I am thunking perhaps barred cochin? Has feathered feet
    Dunno how the pic will show here but she is kinda a rust colored black with red barring ...I have two of these.
    Two pics from two different angles.Think you'll see the color pretty well but not sure if you can see the barring or not She is really barred on her wings and some is starting to show up on her feet as well. I had roomie holding a spotkight on her so that perhaps you could see her better and yes I put her on the washing machine for the photos as it was a good white background so she would stand out.
    Anyone wanna take a shot at breed?
    ETA [​IMG] no comments on the dirty washing machine top please! Gads why didn't I see how dirty that was??? I am ashamed and embarrassed! [​IMG]

    It's a partridge cochin, and possibly a cockerel.

    How did I miss that! I have scoured all the Cochin colors trying to place these two but just missed the Partridge somehow.... I guess my minds eye was seeing something else? I am hoping for pullets though I don't mind the roos I am in fact hoping for a couple but I DID order the pullet mix So they should all be pullets? Right?!? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    I am just turning up with a lot of large combs at only two weeks out of these 25.... I really need some of these birds to quit looking so roo-ish... I want eggs!
    Thank you both for the slap in the face [​IMG] and getting the brain fog cleared to see the OBVIOUS! Of course they are Partridge! Doh!
