    We have two of these little furry friends. No clue if they are boys or girls. But we are wondering what kind of chicks these are. The picture doesn't do its justice. They look darker then they really are because of the heat lamp. They are very light colored, just like the color of a golden retriever dog. They are very stand offish and do not like getting picked up. My other 4 types(barred rocks, RIR's, Red Sex Links, and Silkie's) love it though. These ones we also socialized at 2 weeks old when we got them. Any suggestions or ideas will help. Thank you all


    -We have-
    9 Rhode Island Reds
    3 Silkie's
    2 Red Sex Link
    2 Barred Rocks
    2 WE DON'T KNOW'S.... Lol [​IMG]

    They look like buff Orpingtons.

    Very cute :)

    Thank you! Are they a good laying chicken?

    Also, I did some research and I see every where that they will walk right up to you and won't be stand offish. But ours are that way. Do you think they are that way because they are already getting picked on? Any other ideas will help. Thank you.

    They're pretty decent layers, at least as far as my experience with them goes :)

    Possibly, Orpingtons are a pretty docile breed. It could also be just an awkward phase thing too. You have to consider that those generalities as far as breed descriptions are the average. However, each bird is an individual and will develop their own personalities.

    Good luck with them!
