    Please help ID my ideal warming chicks. Hatched 3 Dec 08 so they are 3 1/2 weeks old. I ordered 13 Barred Rocks and got 4 of these fellas. I am thinking Buff Orpington. Could be Buff Rocks, though. This guy liked to peck the camera lens. He is going to be fiesty. I was just going to put them all in the freezer, but now a friend wants one and I may keep one for the girls' entertainment.

    I would venture to say Buff Rocks since the feet are yellow. But could be Buff Orpingtons. He sure is cute!

    If that chick is only 3 1/2 weeks I would say it is a roo. That comb and waddle is huge for the age.

    Well he was a packing peanut so of course Roo, I would Say Buff Rock because of the yellow legs as well.
