Hello! I am so excited! I live on the TX coast and my surprise shipment of brown egg-layers arrived today, hatched yesterday! They look very healthy and are precious. I am trying to determine what breeds I have! Three are obviously diff. breeds and two are of the same breed. (I think the twins are barred plymouth rocks, 1 rhode island red, not quite sure about the yelllow chick if she is a buff orpington or a white plymouth rock or what, and an unusual golden with dark redish gold stripes on her back? maybe a golden comet. They came as a surprise mix of standard backyard brown egg layers, so I guess time will tell what I have! I have always been an animal lover, but this is my first experience raising chickens!
