Really a jubilee orpington?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey all, lady I got these birds from said she gave me a grouping of rare breeds.


Is this a jubilee orpington chicken? Based on other hatchery pics, she looks to be.

Does she have white skin?

 

Honestly, at this age I'm not sure how to tell a Jubilee Orp from a Speckled Sussex. When they're grown the type should be quite apparent, but as a juvenile I just don't know. Awaiting other input :caf

Sussex have white skin/shanks, and so do Orps if I'm not mistaken. It looks like it, I'd hazard a guess there's no way to know until the bird matures and type is apparent.

Thanks much for the replies. I'll just watch and wait...her tail feathers are very pretty also...kind of curls.
