I had to show pictures of my new babies! This is my first flock, I got them last Saturday. They are 5 days old in the pictures and they're SO cute! The yellows are Buff Orpingtons and the two black ones are Barred Rocks. I love them and I can't wait to watch them grow up!

Are you SURE they are Buff Orpingtons? They look a little too yellow to be BO's to me. BO's usually have more of a buff-colored fuzz even as little chicks. By comparison, if you look at my pic below, you will see 3 BO's who are 1-month old. In the front is a yellow chick who turned out to be white as an adult, and in between two of the older BO's is a little BO chick with her back to us. You can see that she is buff colored even at this age, compared to the yellow chick....

I'm pretty positive they are... I got them through Seattle Tilth and they had a lot of information about where they came from so I'm assuming they are what they say they are

They are a bit darker in person, I was having weirdness with the combination of the room lighting and the camera's flash. I guess we'll see what they turn out to be as they get older!

My BO were a pretty peach color as babies and my yellow chicks turned out to be white rocks. As a first time poultry person, I was surprised at how some colors changed. The black stars ended up having orange feathers around the neck that looks like a fancy necklace.
