    Got these cuties 1 week ago (3/4/11) from local feed store & I guess they should've only been few days old? We had decided we wanted to go with all BO & they man said these were marked "Buff" when they came in. I assumed he must know more than me & I was really anxious to get some so I told him to pick me out 3. Now that their feathers are coming in I'm starting to think that he didn't know so much - do you think they could be RIR? They're pretty and we've gotten attached so i'm sure we'll keep them, I'm just mad at myself for not being more careful:(

    Are these the chicks in your avatar? If so, it's hard to tell since it's such a small picture. Can you post pictures in the thread instead?

    I don't think they're RIRs or RSLs, my RSLs didn't feather out that way. Maybe it's a bantam or mix?

    what about the light colored one in the 4th picture. Do you think it's the same breed or maybe just younger? Husband is concerned that i may've picked out a breed that doesnt lay well & isn't dual breed - that's why we wanted to BO's so much. We were hoping that if one of the three was a roo we could've bred them to get more orpingtons.
