    These two ladies are part of the hatchery choice 25 hen pack I got as day-olds - what the heck are they? They are small and stream-lined like leghorns.

    Can you make the pic bigger? They look like Appenzellars from what i can see... do they kinda look like this?

    They look like hamburgs....what was posted above is a rooster. They are small and streamlined, like leghorns. They lay a small white egg. I received a SS hamburg roo as my free exotic. He is rather flighty and doesn't particularly like to be around me (TOTALLY fine with me - he can just go away while I am working in the coop and run). Beautiful to look at. What other breeds did you get the in the hen pack? Lots of variety?
    Nella, that's a bee-U-tiful bird [​IMG]
