    We bought this chick from the feed store, as a Buff Orp pullet. she looked just like the others & all the others have stayed buff but she's been 'flecked' with red since she started getting feathers & then turned mostly red. Do you think she's a RIR or BO? Her tail feathers have weird lacing on them & I'm just not sure which she is, I've never seen a red like this..

    So will she keep the white tips on her wings & tail? I've never had one of these before & i think shes really pretty with the white & red lacing.

    Baldie: thanks for the picture, yours are gorgeous, they look a lot lighter than my girl though. I'm really not sure exactly how old she is, getting big though, but not laying yet. soon i hope![​IMG]
