Today at the feed store there was a stacking chick bin labeled for various breeds. One bin was labeled "Mixed LARGE BREEDS- Pullets". There appeared to be 3-4 different types or color markings in that particular bin. First one was reddish & brown markings. The 2nd was mostly black with little bit of white markings which the clerk identified as Barred Rocks. The next two were yellow.. one was subtlely mottled buff or golden butter looking ones (which I hoped might be Buff Orpingtons... she said she didn't know. ) Then there were some plain pale yellow ones. I wondered if those could be White Orpingtons, (after looking up pics online when I got home). Since she didn't know, another clerk pulled a breed book that described the looks of a buff orp chick, but the book said they had white bellies, which these didn't have, so I decided not to chance it. Now after seeing pics online I want to go back and look at the buff ones again, this time noticing legs, eyes, etc. My recall is that both the yellow (golden buff and pale yellow ) colored chicks had yellow legs. From research I'd really gotten pretty set on 3 breeds... and I've gotten 2 of the three so far.... the next issue is that I can't have many (fiance said 3 max... but Ijve pushed for 4) due to hen house space. I have a 2 week old Black Australorp (hoping its a pullet, came from a straight run and I tried to sex it myself... yikes... but very sweet to the other birds & lets them tuck under her wing, legs etc.).. then 2 EE's (light slate legs with yellowish toes and dark eyes) pullets about 1 week old. AND today on a whim I brought home a tiny Solid Gray Bantam pullet that has dark gray legs and a darker gray beak.... but now I'm thinking she's way too small and seems too cold when the brooder is comfortable for the others. She doesn't let my Aussie sleep well cause she's obviously too cold and looking for warmth under the legs or wings. So, I wonder if I should bring the bantam back and trade for the possible Buff Orp? Which I really, really want & hope it is... it sure looks like the pics online!. Any ideas what ELSE this buff golden chick could be from the large breeds? What would you do? I'd appreciate any suggestions... thanks!
