    I walked into my local Orschlen for treats for my big girls last week and walked out with 6 more chicks. :rolleyes: I got 3 Barred Rocks from a bin marked BR Pullets. I also got 3 chicks from a bin labeled Assorted Rainbow Layers. Wondering what breeds I got? So far from my research I think I got lucky with pullets, but I guess time will tell. I'm estimating they are 3-4 weeks by now. Thanks for any hints on these sweeties!

    My guess would be a speckled Sussex and a red sex link.

    Thank you! I thought they looked similar to those when I looked them up. Several breeds seem to have that coloring so I couldn't really tell.
