    here are the Weekly Peep's from last week:
    The Weekly Peep 8/12/13

    Breaking News Front Page Story
    ChickenLover200 found out that her supposedly Brown Leghorns are now Black Links.
    How I noticed this ChickenLover200 says, is someone told me that Leghrons always have White earlobes.
    When i looked at these 6 I noticed they had red earlobes, and when they started to lay, they laid brown eggs.
    When Leghorn usually lay white eggs.
    I was curious so i was looking and found a picture of a Black link rooster and hen and there was my answer.
    How i found the picture is on BYC Backyard Chickens so Thank you to BYC!

    please report your Breaking News Front Cover story to ChickenLover200 through PM and explain it is for the Weekly Peep Front Cover!
    Chicken Spotlight

    Here we have Thud the hen named this because when
    she was a chick she would jump out of your hand back into the brooder.
    So hints the name Thud. She was also thought to be a rooster until she laid an egg.
    Yep i am pretty sure roosters don't lay eggs.

    (i know i already did one this week but i just love doing this [​IMG])

    Breaking News Front Page Story


    Who knew roosters could be nice?
    read this story!

    On Promised Land Farm
    at Easter time CL200 and her brothers and mom decided to stop by
    Tractor Supply to check out the new Easter chicks. unknowing CL200 came home to see a small box on the table from dad in the kitchen. that said chick days opening it up to see not 4 but 6 chicks that were supposed to be Brown Leghorns... But now we know because of the last story these chicks that looked like little chipmunks are Black Links. Tractor Supply was wrong..... time passed by and we had a vet come look at our other chickens to make sure they were ok because 2 had died a few days before and the vet confirmed that 3 out of 6 Black LInks thought to be at the time Brown Leghorns. were actually roosters..... Who Knew roosters could be nice? the only time they get mena with them is when we disturb them on the roost because we have to..... other than that they are afraid of us and don't even get near us.....

    CHICKEN SPOTLIGHT


    Today we have Daisy the White Leghorn!

    she is one of the sweetest chickens in this flock named by
    CL200's little brother because he likes Daisy on the Dukes of Hazzard
    (her little brother is only 3) This chichen lays some pretty large eggs
    we actually have one that is blown out from her we thought it was so big whty not keep the shell?
    even though they were raised by the neighbors CL200 as you can see by her username loves all chickens (even roosters)

    below: the egg on top is the one we blew out the egg on bottom is a regular egg size we get from them.

    I don't want to join, but I might follow along a little bit. No your "Black Link chickens" are not Brown Leghorns or Black Sex-Links. They are partridge Rocks. Black Sex Link roosters are barred.

    The Weekly Peep

    Front Cover Headline Story

    In one of the first Weekly Peeps CL200 said that she discovered her Brown Leghorns were actually Black LInks.....
    a suggestion from Cowgrrrl on this thread led her to Partridge Rocks. Cowgrrrl saying that these chickens weren't Brown Leghorns or Black Links because Black Link Roosters are Barred, Cowgrrrl said that these were Partridge Rocks!
