Ordered Breed assortment, need help with this little one

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I can't tell what this little chick (white head, penciled body) is going to be. She's part of my pet chicken's "rare breed assortment"

My guesses are
- silver penciled Hamburg (looks smaller than the silver spangled tho)
- Egyptian fayoumi
- or just a good ole Easter egger. (She does seem like she MAY have muffs)

I've heard that MPC gets their chicks from Meyer hatchery. And this is one of the stock photos of their Easter Eggers. I would be happy with that becuase she is unlike any of my other EEs

She doesnt have the right color pattern for an Egyptian Fayoumi or a Silver Penciled Hamburg. Silver Campine is another thing that came to mind, but thats not right either. Penciling looked more like stripes, and it looks like she does have muffs. So, I'm going with Easter Egger.

That's been my problem all along too. I thought all of those things but nothing seemed right. It was just as a I was posting the pictures that I thought she must have to be an Easter egger!
