    Yesterday I got 6 chicks out of the assorted pullet bin at tsc. I have no idea what I got lol. One was supposedly a golden barred rock but is that even a breed????? They are said to be hatched On 3/12/17. Can anyone help me identify these little chicks???? Thank you!

    All my buff Orpingtons are quite docile, it has more to do with the source and breeding behind them not just the breed, so maybe you will have better luck this time.
