Babies arrived! Stumped on breed of 1.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

This sweet little baby arrived today from the hatchery along with 40 baby Buff Orpingtons. I do not know what her breed is. She is just a little bit bigger than the BO's. She is absolutely beautiful! I didn't see any hairy feet on her. Was the best picture I could get of her.

Not an expert but maybe a Barred Plymouth Rock? I have a BPR hen and she looked like that as a chick.

No I don't think...not sure...but...the color on the top of her head is yellow not white.

The spot on the head simply means the chick is barred. It can be yellow, cream or white, doesn't matter. A straight combed clean legged barred bird from a hatchery is going to be either a cuckoo Marans or a barred Rock....or a male black sex link. The light skin has me leaning towards Marans, but you'll know more at a few weeks old.

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

And one man in his time plays many parts."
