    Hi everyone, so we bought our girls from the local feed store and they said they where rhode island reds [​IMG], BUT as it turns out they aren't. My father thinks they are red stars but i dont think they are, i think they are buff orpingtons. If you guys and girls could give me your input on the matter i would really love it. Thanks.

    i know its not the best image i will try and get new ones up tomorrow but my girls dont like the stand still for the camera. [​IMG]:lau She is the one standing upright. Thats Carmela.

    They are next to the rake. Thats Claire, Carmela is kinda hiding in in the corner of the pic.

    I think you're right - they look like Buff Orpingtons - I'm thinking Carmela (the BO in the first pic) loooks like a cockerel (thick legs, large comb, and overall body shape). The other BO (2nd pic), white leghorn, and easter egger are definitely females.

    First pic - Buff Orpington on left, Easter Egger on right. Second pic - Either a White Rock or a Leghorn. Buff Orpington in background.

    Yes the ones in question are Buff Orps and I also agree the one in the first pic is a cockerel.

    LOL see at first i though she was a he cause of the comb and the 3-4 curled tail feathers but then it started to lose those and i was like ok its just maturing faster than the others. HAHA, at what age do they start to grow spurs? So that means i have to change the name from Carmela to Carmel.
