    HI all,
    When I bought my chickens a week ago. The delivery of 18 week old Red SexLinks had just arrived. I picked out 5 one a dark red the others kind of red and yellow. Thinking I only wanted 6 chickens and wanted some variety I also purchased one black pullet. I don't know what breed see is but she is quite different from the rest. In stead of making nornal chicken sounds she has a quiet peep Can anyone tell me what she is?

    this link should help with the general egg laying info and what they should look like.

    under the section with the breed name is a link that says 'FS', that is to FeatherSite that gives pics of the different colors if any for that breed. it's always a good site to see other different breeds and colors.

    Thanks again everyone. After reading about her I'm very excieted! Get along with others, friendly, good in cold weather, and lays 300 eggs a year. What's not to like. Brown eggs to boot. Very cool.[​IMG]
