    I ordered 10 Buff Orpington pullets and received 12 extra chicks of a different breed. Maybe Blue Orpingtons?

    Thank you for your help!!

    Looks like they have yellow legs and a head spot. I say barred rocks. I am pretty sure you can sex them by head dot when they are a day old, but I don't remember how. When they send extras, "packing peanuts", majority of the time they end up being males

    Yes they look exactly like those photos online. Especially the lighter bellies. I will see if I can find out how to sex them.

    Thanks!

    I agree, they look like Barred Plymouth Rocks.
