    Ok so I purchased 6 new babies. 5 are "Red Pullets" and 1 is a "Buff Orpington?" Is this right? I don't understand how 5 of them could be the same variety when the colors are so different?? Are they actually different varieties?? Please help.. I'd like to learn more about them.

    Two of My "red pullets" look like this ^^^^^^^ (Millicent and Cacchiatore)

    Another 2 "Red Pullets" look like this^^^^^ (BBQ and Florentine)

    This is the 5th "Red Pullet" ^^^^^^ (Alfredo)

    And this is my Buff Orpington(not sure if I am spelling that right) (General Tso)

    So I guess I am trying to figure out why 2 of my reds are brown, 2 of them are red, and one of them looks pretty much just like the buff?? Any more info would be great. Thanks.

    Lots of breeds have a red color, pullet just means "girl". They are not necessarily the same breed.
     
  4. oh oops,

    yes pullet is just a baby girl hen, and cockeral is a boy, red can be any breed , tho buff orpington is a breed, theres good moms, layers, and sweet
