Chicken diapers, lol. You would have to keep changing them, yuk. Much easier to buy a bunch of baby wipes at Walgreens when they have a sale, and just follow them around. I once read about if someone from another planet came here and watched us walk our dogs, with the dogs in the front, and us furtively picking up their poop, who would they think was in charge. When you walk around with your 14th bag of poopy wipes this month, following your chicken, there should be no doubt.

Elleisn, just below the box where you type your response to a thread is a box that says "Browse.." You need to know where your pictures are on your computer.. (what the name of the picture is and what folder/location you saved it) So when you click on Browse, it takes you to a list of your folders... You find your picture..(where you saved it) click on "okay" and that should put your picture filename in the box just below where it says Image: and next to the box you clicked on. Then click "preview" to see if it worked.. and click "send"

You wont' mess anything up.. Just give it a try, you'll get it.. :)

I think they are Rhode Island Reds. They were supposed to be New Hampshire Reds, but I think the guy would have told me they were ducks, if he thought I'd buy them.

The lack of black feathers and the presence of white feathers makes me kinda think they look like a red sex link of some sort.. I copied this from Feather site..

Red Sex-Links are the result of various crosses. White Rocks with the silver factor (the dominant white gene would produce all white offspring) are crossed with a New Hampshire male to produce the Golden Comet. Silver Laced Wyandotte crossed with New Hampshire gives the Cinnamon Queen. Two other crosses are obtained with Rhode Island White x Rhode Island Red, and Delaware x Production Red. These two crosses are simply called Red Sex-Links. Males hatch out white and, depending on the cross, feather out to pure white or with some black feathering. Females hatch out buff or red also depending on cross, and they feather out in one of three ways.

1. Buff with white or tinted undercolor (such as Golden Comet, Rhode Island Red x Rhode Island White)
2. Red with White or tinted undercolor (Cinnamon Queen)
3. Red with Red undercolor (Delaware x Production Red) (In this color pattern it is almost impossible to distinguish daughters' color from father's color.)
