    4 week old chicks my husband brought back from a farm.

    Please tell me what you think?

    The first one is a boy I think. Barred Rock?

    The next one is a big ol' chick, Buff Orffington?

    Quote:I agree! But the Buff orp kinda looks like a, Golden Wyandotte maybe? I'm not sure. But my Buffs have never had any black on them at all.

    The barred turned out to be a roo. The best of the entire bunch. funny and friendly. He went quickly to a small farm and took right to the group as the lead. ( He died later in a coyote attack)

    After he left the girls would wander around and now they've settled down to just follow me everywhere.

    they are 24 weeks 2 days and haven't started laying yet.

    Lori.

    I'm still not sure the breed on the GW/BO?

    Here is the most recent picture I have of her.

    what do you think now?

    Maybe hatchery quality New Hampshire. Or a mix. Not buff Orp or a Wyandotte.
