What breed is this mystery chick?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

This is Garuda.  She is 4 weeks old.  She is one of the Rare Breeds from Meyer Hatchery.  She was yellow as a chick baby with a black stripe down the back of her head.  My guess is either a Swedish flower hen, jubilee orpington, or easter egger.  She can't be a Rhode Island Red because I didn't order any of those.  Any advice would be appreciated. :)

Welcome to BYC! :welcome We're so glad you joined us!

 

I would tend to guess Jubilee Orp, but I could be wrong. I don't see a slight "poof" on top of the head indicating a soon-to-be crest. :)

I raise Buckeyes, Jubilee Orps, and Swedish Flowers. I'm leaning more towards a Buckeye personally. The white tipped feathers will molt out and be solid red. Looks to be pea combed as well. Its just yelling Buckeye to me. Should be heavier legged and shorter faced in a Jubilee Orp.

YES! Why didn't I think of that? Our Buckeye also was a spitting image of @Mon Chick Chick's baby.

What type of comb does it have?

 

It's not an Orpington, they have white skin. 

 

I agree the bird is going to be some shade of red when mature. That juvenile coloring isn't true and will molt out.

Thanks for your help! It makes me sad that she will lose her white tips. They are so pretty. 😢
