    My order from MPC came in yesterday [​IMG] and I ordered a NH Red and a Buff Orpington. There are distinct differences in the chicks, but I can't tell which is which. Any suggestions?

    NH should be a little darker than the BO. Can't tell from your pics (they both look sort of pink because of the light). You'll definitely be able to tell later though.

    Your NH will start to feather in soon with variegated light red/cream colored wings. I have both of these breeds and think they are great! Have fun with your chicks! [​IMG]

    BO? (rethinking)

    NH Red?

    The BO is confusing me with its brown/white wings.
