    Went to a chicken auction today so we already had Henny & Penny and we now have Jenny & Lenny ... because we are just that cool. (plus a few to be named chicks).
    Anyway, hubby grabbed Jenny while I was out chasing the kids, so we're not sure what she is (the auctioneers are so hard to hear anyway!).

    There were a few just "chickens" so it's possible she's a mix, but she sure is p'errdy!

    Thanks!


    ALSO! How old will chicks need to be before anyone can ID them? We picked up a couple little guys (I believe they are maybe only 1 or 2 days old) and we also have no idea what they are.

    I'm sorry, I don't know what she is, but I just had to let you know I love the photo. It looks like she's doing a special happy pose with a great big smile. [​IMG]

    Just happy to finally be out of the tiny box we had her in for 3 hours! [​IMG]
    I haven't been able to catch her yet but she seems like a very friendly chicken, and once she settles I'll have no problem taming her.

    TC- quite possibly! She does look a lot like them [​IMG]
    That would be pretty cool too since we're sort of going for a barred rock flock!

    95% sure she is a black sex link because she looks exactly like mine do. Congrats on the new additions.[​IMG]

    Quote:x2 I have one just like it, only a bit older. They fill out really nice and get all fluffy after a year old so she's still young.

    You can post pics of the babies and if they are a purebred someone should be able to give you an idea of what they are...

    The one you posted does look a bit like my BSL
