    I bought these chicks at BigR when they we just peeps. The gal at the store said one breed, a man standing by listening said it was a different kind of breed. So I am wondering if anyone knows what these chicks are?
    I do believe that they are about 4 weeks, but that is just a guess...

    Okay, I looked up SL and found out about that breed and the other names you mentioned. Thank you for letting me know what you thought.
    To me they look more brownish than red so I am thinking more 'Golden Comet'?
    I was hoping that they were Orpingtons but after reading about the SL's they seem to be nice as well. After doing my chicken homework I find that I really like the Lavender Orpingtons so perhaps later down the road I will require a couple of those. I am a bit limited since I live in an area that allows only 6 chickens.
