    My RIR roos looked just like that when they were little, all my little girls has black chipmunk stripes on their backs and a black spot on the head. But the boys had white wings and basically looked JUST like them.

    Yup I actually called because I requested no peanuts and they came any way. RIR roosters and yours look just like mine did three weeks ago. Enjoy the babies.[​IMG]

    who did you buy from? I'm just wondering which hatcheries are back to adding packing peanuts. I guess it is getting cooler outside.

    I'm so new that I was trying to look in the background of your photos for the actual packing peanuts <sigh> I'm with you now. I'll get the hang of the chicken lingo eventually.
