    Tractor Supply.... we showed them a picture and they said that the only ones they sold that looked like that was Asians and they were straight runs. But my dad said they got them out of the pullet batch.

    I'm thinking it is some sort of mix. I've gotten a mix (the hen in my avatar) from TSC but them told me it was a Black Australorp.

    do you think that they could be bantams? They like to lay on their side and are extremely lazy... they lay down alot even the ones outside.

    If it is smaller then there is a very good chance of being part bantam.
