What breed is this chick? - Page 2

post #11 of 18

yeah, same comb as a blue hamburg I'm pretty sure. Looks a lot like a blue Andalusian, but the comb isn't single.

I wonder how I ended up with one of these kind of breeds from a feed store :)  It was just assorted Pullets.  I thought maybe it was an Australorp but now that it is older it is clearly not.

Is it possible it is a blue copper maran or is the comb all wrong?

Looks like white earlobes, rosecomb - maybe some type of Bantam cross? She's very small. Maybe a cross between a Dutch and an Easter Egger?

Maran's have single combs.

One of my friends just recently got a blue hamburg from a hatchery also as a surprise. They just threw it in with the others she ordered lol So that's why it wouldn't surprise me if it was.

She's just a tad smaller than the barred rock, easter egger, buff Orpington, and RIR I got on the same day.  I'd have to check the calendar at home to get an exact age.  I have 12 chickens total that I got over the course of a month starting in February.   the black and white easter egger on my profile is just starting to crow some funky crows every once in awhile.   He was supposed to be a pullet, but I guess as long as he's the only roo it will be fine.

May be a Blue Rosecomb?

It may be too soon to tell, but I thought this was a Buff Orphington, but I am no so sure anymore because her feathers look more reddish than buff...  Got her at a feed store.  Can anyone tell what she may be?
