Thanks for your input. I hope they are SFH b/c I sure payed a lot for them...lol
Ohhh let's just hear from others. Perhaps there are some very different ones out there. Are they from a breeder?

I just looked on MY PET CHICKEN and they have at least 2 that look similar. So, perhaps as chicks they look different than mine.

Yes, I ordered them from a hatchery. I did my research on several hatcheries b/c I'm a bit skeptical about ordering from hatcheries.

Okay, I'd check the website for the hatchery. If they turn out not to be, I'm sure they'd replace them.

I've hatched them too..just wondering about that chipmunk baby. That black and white one will be so pretty when the white dots start coming out!

Ok! Found more, and one has a chipmunk look!

Awesome! Do you have eggs? My daughter has asked about Swedish Flower eggs. The one we kept was with a friend and it was killed by another chicken when we were away :(. I asked the breeder if I could buy some more eggs, but hadn't heard back and that was shortly before BYC went down.

I was pleased thst the hatchery sent a vatiety. One is a roo...don't have a clue which one that is yet. I think the chipmunk looking one will change alot before adult feathers come in. Tbe B&W one will be interesring to see as an adult.

No eggs....yet. My plan is to incubate eggs next spring.
