    Yeppers, you guessed correctly! [​IMG] She's definitely a Buff. I used to have one, and she looked just like yours.

    You're welcome! [​IMG] I don't blame you, considering how frustrating it is not getting what you paid for. I've heard countless stories of individuals who are the "victims" of a bin mix-up. [​IMG]

    Yes!
    Tractor supply employees don't usually know so they label them as they are told.
    Our tractor supply had MUSCOVY ducklings labeled as pekin! They were clearly not pekins as they were all white with black caps. But the people working in the stores said they were labeled as pekins from the hatchery so that's how they were selling them
