    I thought this was a buff orpington but now at two weeks she is feathering out with reddish brown feathers with white tips. She was all yellow when I received her as a two day old chick. She's part of my "brown egg layer assortment" from Meyer Hatchery so I'm sure she's not a mix. She is getting way darker than my grown buff orps. New Hampshire? Other suggestions?

    Perhaps a red sex link? May change as she gets older...

    I was going to get on tonight and ask the same question, but my chicks look very different. Meyer must have a ton of variety in their breeding stock! I got a brown egg layer assortment, too, and none of my chicks look like yours.

    I did get RSL from them too but they look nothing alike. The rsl started out yellow with a red glow on her head and back with streaks. Her wings have grown in mostly white. They really don't seem the same. As for a second generation rsl, I wouldn't think the hatchery would breed them that way but am I wrong?

    you're the one with the undecided partridge rock right? None of mine are.
    The other two you can see in photo #1 are my ee female and the faverolle I hatched.

    Okay. My name's Juliet, btw, but Jules works.

    This is what I thought might be like yours. There is more red growing in, only three days later, especially on its breast.
