    Bought some chicks from Atwoods last week. They came from Ideal Hatchery and most were in the Bantam Special. Do not know what breeds they are. Can anyone tell us what breed the chicks are? What variety (color) they are. [​IMG]

    Chick 2: We also think this one is an Ancona Pullet Standard
    [​IMG]

    Quote:We've never had Ancona before. Are yours chicks only or do you have adult Ancona. Was wondering how they are with confinement? We have "A" frame houses for each breed.
