Help figure out what breed this is?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hello all! I am new to chicken keeping and have found this site so helpful! I recently bought some Ameracaunas, Wyandottes, Gold Sex Links, and a Black sex link. However, one of the chicks doesn't look like any of the others and I'm trying to figure out which it could be. It is the lightest one in the attached photos. I'm wondering if it is another breed entirely that just got mixed in with the wrong group at the farm store. They are a little over 3 weeks old and this one has always been the biggest. It has feet the color of the Ameracaunas, but no "beard" like the others, and coloring similar to the gold sex links, but it's comb is different than those. I bought pullets but know that it no guarantee.Maybe it's a cockerel? Any idea? Is it too early to tell? Thanks so much! -Julie

I had read that EEs are often sold as "Ameracaunas". Do not all EEs have "beards"? The two brown ones seem to, but not the light one.

Hatchery EE "usually" have beards, but it's not an absolute. I'm thinking your girl will look something like this (minus the beard)

 

 

While your other chicks will have the more classic wild-type coloring....
