So, a week ago my son comes home from school saying that a friend has a few chicks and he has to get rid of them. Apparently he got them a couple of weeks previously and now his mother had enough and told him that he had to get rid of them or she was going to kill them. They said that they were supposed to be buff orpingtons. (Thats what the person at the feed supply store told them.) I thought great, I want to get some of them anyway, ok we'll take them. We go to pick them up and as soon as I saw them I thought, Buff Orpington NOT!!! Hello, they are getting white feathers not buff! We said that we would take them, so we took them in the hopes that maybe there were a white orpington. I don't think so though. They are probably about a month old now and are their feathers are coming in big time. All they do is eat, poop and sleep. I think that they may be a cornish X rock and that I only prolonged their lives for another month, what do you think?
