    I recently acquired 6 chickens (about 4-5 weeks when I got them) from the local hardware store. These girls are my first chickens ever. So, like any good mother, I did a lot of research on their breeds and personalities. From my research I decided that I have 1 buff rock, 2 speckled Sussex and 3 girls that don’t really fall into either group.

    The one that I’m most curious about and the one that stands out, is my little Rosie. She was in the same case with the buff rocks and speckled Sussex.

    She is the sweetest little thing.. and her personality is so different from the others. The first 2 pictures are from the first week we had her. Approximately 4-5 weeks old.

    These pictures are from today. 7-8 weeks old.

    And what’s up with her comb?
    Either way she is a very special girl to me.

    It’s pretty unmistakable that my little Rosie is a sicillian butter cup. This picture is of a different sicillian butter cup that I found on the internet. Pretty cool! 6E3FF7F8-2BAA-47D0-BB2D-0A92EFD2955F.png

    She is beautiful! Not sure how she ended up in the batch of speckled Sussex at the store but I am so happy I got her.
