    I got 20 of these little roos with my order of 5 russian orloff pullets and am wondering what breed they are and how I can get rid of them quick

    I want to say partridge cochin. You can probably sell them on CraigsList for $1/ea offering the information that they were packing peanuts and might all be males - BUT - if the hatchery had more than were ordered that week, you may very well have a good chance of having some girls.

    Does that chick have fifth toes?

    ETA: if so, maybe Faverolles

    I just went and checked a few of them and none of the ones that I checked had fifth toes. They are all pretty close to the same coloration with some slight variation. they all have feathered legs, light underbellies, and light coloration on the wings. I will try to get some more pictures in a little while of a few of them, standing and different angles.
