    I recently brought two new girls home today since I had called to ask the lady that was selling a White Ameraucana hen for $20 but I had asked her if she'd sell me the hen for $10 but she told me that she'd sell the hen to me for $15 yesterday and today I got a call from the lady and she asked me if I wanted to buy the Ameraucana hen for $10 and have another hen for free. I jumped at the chance and I brought them home today. Lucky that I've got a 2 for 1 deal.

    Does the first chicken have a clipped beak? Or is that just the photo? I have no guesses at breeds BTW.

    Yes her beak was already debeaked which I've noticed when I brought the girls into their new home.

    I love the white whiskers!

    I hate that the other is debeaked. I don't know why people do that... Isn't that what peepers are for? Will the beak grow back?

    Quote:I doubt that her beak will grow back and I too hate when cruel people debeak a poor hen like that... She's even having trouble getting in food in her beak poor girl. I would still want to know what breeds my girls are.

    First one, I'd think is a Buff Orpington - can we get a full pic?

    Second one, an Ameraucana of Ameraucana-cross, from those cheeks.
