Penciled Rock?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
New poster here. I have been lurking and learning for quite a while though. Long story short I received chicks in the middle of April from MPC. One of the breeds I had ordered was unavailable so they sent another, they said it was a silver penciled rock. I'm thinking maybe it's not. I noticed today that it looks like it's getting tufts on its cheeks, but I could be mistaken. Also it has grey legs which I saw that rocks don't have. I would love it if anyone was willing to make a guess as to what he/she might be. It's 6 weeks here. Sorry for the blurry picture from the front, it's hard to get good pictures of these little guys! You can see its legs and maybe make out a tuft on its right side. Thanks so much!



Also it's smaller than the other regular sized ones I ordered, here it is next to a Silkie that is the same age, within a couple days. Think maybe it's a bantam or possibly just slower growing?


Thanks!!

Looks as if she may be an Easter Egger bantam.  :welcome

Thanks sourland. We are new to chickens. I thought so today when I saw the tufts but I haven't noticed them before so I thought maybe I was crazy! Thanks again!

Thanks too Littlegreywolf. It really doesn't matter what it is, it's one of the faves regardless. I've just had my doubts of a penciled rock for a bit and then when I noticed the legs I really started wondering. I'm excited about an Easter egger though.
