This one may not be as hard to figure out by someone with experience but I can't find any pictures that look like this chick. I have 3 of them this color.

TSC it just said "red pullets" I hadn't had chickens since I was a kid and I bought 6 to start out. There's 2 leghorns, 3 chicks like this one, and 1 what you had told me before was a buff brahma(which I'm pretty sure your absolutely right).. I will probably get Buff Orpington's next for eggs of course but mainly for meat

That's where I got mine too. More than likely production reds. They are a mix meant to be mean egg layers! I've read maybe 6 a week. This is our first time with chickens. My oldest are almost 6 weeks old the youngest a little less than 5 weeks.

I have two of these production reds, 4 Colombian rock cross, 5 barred rock, 4 dark brahmas and 2 silkies. So far I have 4 Roos so they will be dinner once they are big enough.

Yeah I am very happy with them. I'm anxiously awaiting this awkward "teenage" stage to be over. I can't wait till I have big full birds that I don't worry about leaving outside. It's been really rainy here in Mass so I haven't let them out the past two days. Just trying to give them treats and stuff to keep them from getting too bored. They and I are anxiously looking forward to nicer weather!
