    These chickens are about 3-4 months old (guessing)...

    We got these six babies as Buckeyes, but one is darker than the rest (and I haven't seen or read anything about black Buckeyes...).

    Ever since we got them, they have always stuck together - put them in a bin with 14 other babies the same size when we first got them, and they STILL stayed in a little group all the time.

    She (?) still has some baby feathers clinging to her head...

    Quote:We got them from Ward's Feed Store here locally. I am thinking they said they got thier orders from McMurray Hatchery, but am not positive on that...
