    when we bought our first 10 chickies, we bought 5 assorted reds, assorted pullets, and then I went back and got 6 more assorted reds. do you have any ideas of the ones I have pics of? I am curious about the chicks with speckled wings, but I haven't got a clue which batch of purchases they came from. this is our first time having chicks (or chickens at all for thatmatter) so any help or suggestions are welcomed and appreciated!

    I think the ones with the longest wings are the last ones that i got.

    ^^ I have a few that seem to be lacking in the wing growth department, compared to the others and they are all the same age, I should add (plus or minus a day)

  2. The second to last pic looks like my productions reds. If the others are buff (kinda hard to see in the lighting) I would say they are buff orps. [​IMG]

    I will go get a pics of my production reds.
    Here they are at 3 days old.

    I am so hoping I have some BO's (wow I will never say that phrase again lol) but I like a surprise (to an extent)
