    This little chick was purchased at Atwoods along with some New Hampshire Red chicks.

    I'm thinking it may be an Orpington but I'm not sure.

    Hope I did the upload correctly.

    Hard to say at this point.

    In that bottom pic those feet are huge... could it be a roo?

    Not sure yet on roo status. It was in a "heavy" breed pen.
    It is certainly smaller than the NHR picture with it. They were already showing color while this one was buff.

    I have some BR and Aussies that were purchased at the same time...some of them are huge and some are smaller.

    I bought most the day they were delivered to Atwoods and a very knowledgeable saleslady helped the first day.
    I forgot to get some straightrun Aussies to go with the pullets to try to get a roo. So I went back the next day to get those and couldnt resist the NHRs. Of course she was at lunch and the gentleman helping didn't know a BR from a Leghorn or a Bantie from a Heavy.
