They are supposed to be just feathered out young Blue Cooper Maran Pullets.
Bit scruffy looking since they were shipped.

Then my DS had to pipe up.... Hey Mom, you have Two French Hens.... we just need a pear tree with a partridge in it. Rolled my eyes at him and told him we have Pear trees in the Orchard. OK then, he said... we just need to buy a Partridge and we will be all set for Xmas...
Sigh ~~ LOL

Will be hard to wait to see how dark their eggs are Next spring. :D

Pretty birds! I hatched out a couple from local eggs. They are, of course, both roosters.

Why I opted to buy started Pullets. More spendy, but I know I have Pullets. ;)

My last batch of chicks... 95% Roos and only 5% hens. In all the years I have had chickens I have never had that many Roos. :p
Usually 50/50.

Yes, they are very lightly feathered down the sides of their legs.

Not helping Lady89... LOL

Yeah, be careful, getting a partridge for your pear tree would start you down a slippery slope to the rest of the menagerie from that song...another kind of chicken math, lol!
