    Traded a Buff Orp Roo for these two chicks.
    This chick is from Meyer Hatchery. My friend ordered the Leann's "Adopt Me Bargain. " I think she is a Standard Dark Cornish Hen. What do you think?

    This is a Rhode Island Red Rooster. What do you think of him? Do you think he'll turn out okay?

    Nice, healthy looking birds. I think it's a cornish cross, very pretty. And your RIR still looks pullet-ish to me in the face but I love the deep red color.

    Quote:Thanks! At first I though the cornish one was a wyandotte, because of his face. But then I look in the meyer catalog and they had dark cornish chickens so I figured thats what he/she was. [​IMG]
    I'm pretty sure the RIR is a roo, because his tail feathers and so rooish. [​IMG] He has black on the end of his tail it's all shiney and stuff, and I'm pretty sure the RIR hens don't have that. [​IMG] I sure wouldn't mind him being a hen, though! lol

    Very cute! I love the markings on the first one--it's beautiful! The second does look to be a RIR, and I'd say the first looks like a pullet and the second could go either way but I'm leaning towards cockerel.

    The first chicken really looks like a wyandotte in the face, but the body doesn't. Could he be a wyandotte X Dark Cornish???
    I named the RIR roo ... Red ... LOL very creative huh!! lol I'm still trying to think of a name for the first one .. any ideas? [​IMG]
