    And the store was closing and the owner was in a hurry so he didn't find out what they were...

    One of the lil yellow one has feathered feet...

    I'll call the store tomorrow and ask for sure... Any guesses tonight?

    The black ones look like silver laced wyandottes. The yellow feather legged one could either be a white cochin or light brahma

    x2 Are the other yellow guys clean legged? If so, they are probably White Leghorns or maybe White Rocks.

    I would get them on some FF it might help make poops not so runny.

    They are cute wonderful hubby you have!

    Good luck I am sure you will do fine with them.
    I don't use the medicated feed I do FF right away They just seem to have *nicer* poops on it IMHO and don't spread it around the brooder as much as the dry crumbles so it saves me money too.

    (FF is for Fermented Feed)
