    Hello Well I am supposed to have 5 RIR pullets and 15 buff orpingtons. But I am thinking that I ended up with a different breed. The chicks are going to be 2 weeks on monday. What do you think? Here is my RIR:

    And here is one of the "supposed to be buffs"

    The pics dont really show the difference as much as you can see it in person. But What do you think? Did I some how get some mixed chicks?

    You most certainly got mixed chicks.

    But they are still beautiful.

    The last two look the same, but the first is surely something different. Either way, they are darling! Congratulations!

    The last one is not like any BO I have ever seen before. Perhaps they ran out of BO's and substituted with something else? In any case, they are all very adorable, and the last one looks to be a very pretty coloring nonetheless.

    They look very pale compared to the BO chicks I have seen, however, we did have a recent post that demonstrated that there are variations.
