What kind of chick is this?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I hatched out some chicks (bought orpington hatching eggs) and then bought some "ameraucanas" from the feed store (I know, they are probably EEs not real ameris).

Anyway, this girl is in my brooder and she doesn't fit any of the options smile.png. So either the feed store gave me something other than an Ameri (highly possible!) or the breeder slipped a different egg into my order...?



She's barred and brown...kind of like a crele or legbar look...but she has blue feet and pink legs.

Any thoughts?

Do you know where the feed store gets their chicks?  A local person or shipped in from a hatchery?

 

I'd be inclined to think perhaps a Dixie Rainbow or some other colorful broiler.

usually have between 20 and 50 chickens

I'm pretty sure the feed store probably gets them from hatcheries, but I honestly don't know. Thanks!
