    I ordered 10 extra EEs from Meyer Hatchery, and to my surprise, they included an extra chick. She's always been particularly tiny. Even now, she's only at 3.1oz on the scale(where as my Sulmtalers are at a minimum of 5oz.), she's definitely some sort of buff, I'm *thinking* she's a bantam buff orpington, but what do you guys think?


    What do you guys think?

    Nope! She's clean legged, her fink and beak are pink-ish. I initially thought cochin, but then dismissed it since she was completely clean legged.

    I find that my standard orpington chicks always have unusually large feet :)P) however that could just be the lines. What is the comb type?

    Meyer doesn't carry bantam Buff Orpingtons, and not only that but you ordered laying birds (EEs), so you would receive another laying breed. [​IMG] I believe this to be a standard Buff Orpington.
