    Hi All,

    I'm new to BYC but have been lurking for a while learning a lot about my flock!

    We started last year with Golden Sebright bantams and 4 'unknown breed' hens (maybe Isa Browns?).

    We recently decided to add Silverudds Blue Isbar to our flock! We have 10 additions (unfortunately though I thought I was buying 6 Isbars but it turned out to be 1 Isbar, 4 Ameraucanas and 1 not sure yet :(

    I am looking forward to growing my flock of Isbars and can't wait to see the green eggs!

    I am excited to join and be part of the community!!

    Yes..... at first it was denial and then when I sent pics of the one with a muff she said they must've gotten the chicks mixed up. However I questioned that they were Isbars as soon as I got them; she made a point of talking about the Isbar's 'dark eyes' yet only 2 out of 6 chicks had that trait. I did get a refund for 3 of the 4 black chicks.

    I'm hoping the one turns out to be a hen so maybe I'll get some blue eggs??

    The others are roos....
