    Can anyone help me identify these 3 week old pullets? I purchased them at a farm store and I told the employee that I wanted buff orpingtons. When I got home and set up, Their wing feathers are obviously coming in white with black stripes and splotches. The smaller chick is a two week old rooster and he does have buff wing feathers. I greatly appreciate any input.

    I think you should wait a little longer. Maybe 4-5 weeks.

    Thank you, I will be watching them closely and posting new photos. I have seen some Delaware pullets that are the same age and look very similar, could this be a possibility?

    You have one buff orp, the rest I don't know but I do know they aren't buff orps. Go back to the store you bought them from and tell them they sold you the wrong breed.

    I did just get back from a return trip to the feed store. They tell me that they are pretty sure that they are light brahma's. What do you all think?

    I did forget to mention that the pullets do have feathers coming in on their legs. Does this help?[​IMG]

    Yes, with feathered legs, they could be Light Brahmas. What kind of comb do they have? Brahmas have a pea comb.

    They do have tiny pea combs. Any other opinions would be greatly appreciated too though. [​IMG]

    My boyfriend has so fallen in love with the first four, that he sent me back for four more. According to the labels on their pens, I brought home 2 Partridge Rock pullets and 2 black sex link pullets. They have joined my little BO roo and 3 ??? light brahma??? pullets. I would be interested to learn about anyone's personal experience with these breeds. I've posted a couple of links for photos of the 3 to date mystery hens and still would like to hear more about them as well. [​IMG]
