    Hi everyone, I just ordered chicks and was looking for photos of full grown hens.

    (Edit- now that I think of it, I'll happily gaze photos of any age of these breeds. It'll be good to see how they grow.)

    I have searched for photos of some, but noticed that I got incorrect photo links for some of them. (Example- I googled red leghorns and got links to RIR's.) Others are too small to see the detail. I don't want illustrations either. Also- some are just side views, etc. Hens only please, its seems that rooster photos are everywhere. I know, I'm asking a lot. [​IMG]

    I ordered some rose comb brown leghorns, red leghorns, partridge rock hens, partridge cochins (no shortages of photos here- gorgeous bird!), and speckled sussex. I wish I had enough room to try gold laced wyandottes and partridge dominiques. Maybe next year, huh? I will see how I do with these 15 birds. [​IMG]


    Edit- forgot to say please.

    I have never heard of a Partridge Dominique. Anyone have any pics? I looked on Feathersite and googled them and came up with nothing.

    Quote:Hm. I checked the site of the hatchery we ordered thE chicks from, and I am mistaken, of course. I must have looked at too many breeds in one day and got confused. [​IMG]. Unless there is a different variety in the paper catalog that isn't online. Can't check it til Monday, I left it at work. I'm sure there was another partridge something that I wanted... Also wanted buckeyes and chanteclers. So many breeds, so little time!

    Thanks for the photos! They look so preeeeetty, I'm so excited! [​IMG]
