    Okay we have solved 1 out of my many question marks. A very cute Danish Brown Leghorn! thanks

    so here is my next ? unknown Ideal chick <G>

    I ordered 3 RIR pullets
    in the box there were 5 redish chicks - one we lost it looks most like the the ones I think are RIR.
    to make it MORE interesting.
    I also have 3 unaccounted for Rare breed pullets and 3 assorted Heavy breed pullets.
    In the pictures the chicks are 2-3 days old one of the chick looks different to me - her wing feathers are not coming in as fast and as well as having a stronger "line" on her head she had faint chipmunk bars on her back.
    and she is smaller.
    so my HUNCH? is that I have 3 RIR and what????
    I have been trying to look at the ideal pix <G>
    my guesses? Red Leghorn? Buff Catalana? ahah I have no idea? I don't think it is another RIR? I do already see comb development.

    Okay so she could be a RIR
    any reason to think why the others are getting wing feathers much faster - all at the same rate and she is not?
    I mean I guess it is possible that I ended up with 5 RIR. The advanced rate the feathers are coming in on 3 of them is really dramatic as compared the the 4th.
    oh well time will tell!
    the black chicks are even a bigger mystry I think they are going to have to get some feathers before I will even start to figure it out LOL.
    thanks!
