    I recieved an extra six of these little creatures in the crate with my order of Buff Orphington Bantams. Any clue what I have?? Nice little surprise, but I don't know what they are. They look like little raccoons. Please tell me what you know! Thanks!!

    Either Barred rocks or Black sexlink males as packing peanuts.

    The more I look, I think you are right, FancyFowl4ever. I'm thinking Barred Rocks. Maybe I'll get lucky and get a pullet. Either way, I can't loose. Thanks!

    If they have white on the tops of their heads, they are most likely males.

    I agree, those are most likely black sexlink males. Usually those poor little guys get tossed into meatie orders through. Guess they got a second chance :)
