What breed is this chicken?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Can anyone give me some ideas of what this chicken might be?  He/She is a rare breed assortment from Meyer Hatchery.  I ordered females but I have a feeling this one is not a female.  I had thought it was a Jubilee orpington but had a Jubilee breeder tell me she has never seen one with this much white.  So maybe a badly bred Jubilee??  Are there any other breeds that look like this.  He/she has clean yellow legs.  Thanks!

We sure are loving having chickens!  They are a lot of fun.

Thanks! That looks about right. He sure is going to be interesting looking with that crest on his head!  Wish I was allowed to keep roosters!
