    I bought a few chicks from my local tractor supply and even my local coop .. and well i know that one was an assorted bantam , however one was suppose to be an easter egger .. however i now believe i was totally given the wrong chicks ..lol dont get me wrong i love these 2 as they are the most friendly in my flock .. to humans .. but very bratty "plucking order" hateful to newer pullets i bring in .. also ive had no crowing, no eggs nothing at all .. and ive had these 2 since since the end of april 2014 ..

  2. The top one is a Silver Laced Wyandotte, and the bottom one is possibly a BB Red Leghorn.

    Could we see a few more pictures of the second one?

    Dumb question here .. but what is a BB Red Loghorn ?
     
  7. Sorry, I should have specified! It is a Leghorn, but the color variety is Black Breasted Red, also known as BB Red. She seems to have very good coloring, too!

    Its ok !! Im totally new to this ! And since you said she .. im gonna assume that could be why ive not heard any crowing then huh ... lol !
     
  9. Oops, I meant Light Brown Leghorn, not BB Red! Sorry!

    Yes, she is a hen. If it were a rooster, she would have a different color pattern.
