Can anyone tell me what kind of chicken I have?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I bought several mystery chicks from BYC. Cannot get the picture to upload. But the chick was yellow and at 3 weeks is mainly white but showing some faint dark threads. Sort of like an old hair dye in need of a root touch-up! Feet are greenish. Any guesses?hmm.png

You might need to make a few more posts before you can post pics? 

Not sure but pics are they best way to ID birds, tho chicks can be hard to ID.

Green legs says EE (easter egger) to me.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts."

How old are they?  If they're laying, they're just kinda bleached out--the yellow will return when they take a break during molt.  Or, they could be mixed with a white legged breed like Orpington, Sussex, etc.

The hens are layers. The pullets should start very soon. None are molding currently. I was told by an extension office near me that they are most likely hybrid birds. But the color is virtually white, not just "washed out".
