Hi eveyone! I'm so happy the new girls are here. The 2 SLW's are missing - feed store said the hatchery messed up... Should be here this afternoon or tomorrow. But the other girls would like to make their debut!
Question on RIR's - how much color variation do they have? In the 2nd pic, the 2nd girl from the left is a RIR. She has a yellow stripe down her back. Is that normal? All the pics I see of RIR chicks are, well, more red.(like the 2nd girl from the right)
Enjoy!

Terry

Are you sure its not a golden sex link

Nope! I ordered RIR's, but I did see a brooder with a red or golden sex links. Maybe they mixed them up? It was hard to see in the brooders.(these are from the feed store)

Hi SuenRob,
My little chipmunks are Ameraucanas, but I've heard Welsummers are striped as well. Where did you get yours from? The Welsummers are harder to come by, I think.

Can't wait to get the SLW's!
