Welsummer Chick? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
There's a chance it oculd be a mix too, but I'm not sure. I don't know of any other breeds with a double (buttercup comb) and that looks to me what your chick has, but maybe someone else has a sugestion.
When I don't fit in and I don’t feel like I belong anywhere
When I don’t measure up to much in this life
Oh, I’m a treasure in the arms of Christ (forgiven ~ Sanctus real))

can,i,ask how to identify thE buttercup cone in the pic I posted I am very new to chickens and that would be valuable knowledge to have. I like the looks of the sicilian buttercup I was trying to compare leg color to the image u posted with what mine has.

Dark Cornish

 

Buttercups have a more speckled head similar to wyandote chicks.  That chick has a definite brown diamond marking on the top of it's head which buttercups do not have. Other chicks like brown leghorns also are chipmunk patterned with head diamond but they are a darker brown in color.  That leaves welsummer, speckled sussix and dark cornish,, and that comb looks more like a pea comb, ie,  nonexistent,, than a single comb which the welsummer and sussix would have. Therefore my money is on Dark Cornish.
