    I just got baby chickens from tractor supply, suppost to be buff orpingtons, but now I'm not so sure they're buff orpingtons due to the crest on their heads. Can any one help me identify them better?[​IMG][/IMG]

    [​IMG] The chick is pretty well obscured by your hand, but you can bet there are no crested orpingtons. TSC is notorious (at least the local store by me) for mislabeling chicks and ducklings.
