Hello everybody, been poking around here for a bit trying to get an idea of just what I have in my dz "Straight Run Heavies" that we just bought at a local chain farm and ranch store(not sure about saying store names). Saw how much fun everybody was having so joined up. I started out my game of clue by finding out what hatchery they use(It was one I had heard of here in Texas so I looked them up and went through looking at heavy Black chickens, to see baby pictures. At first it wasn't hard to tell that the one my wife picked out was either older, different breed or both. My first guess on my other 11 was maybe australorp(think thats right), then was thinking barred rocks, and had decided I had 6 roos, and 5 pullets, that was until this morning. Now I am seeing some bloodred veins on the new neck feathers of a couple I had thought barred rock hens, now I wonder if they could be sexlinked, lol Still no idea on George/Georgina, so here is a couple of shot of him/her for your ideas. backyardchickens.com/forum/uploads/91901_photo100.jpg backyardchickens.com/forum/uploads/91901_photo102.jpg Heres a group shot of the others, when we brought them home, all were black, the ones with spots on their heads were more dark gray compared to the ones without the headspots. backyardchickens.com/forum/uploads/91901_photo102.jpg Thanks everybody, I have to figure out my web page now.
