What breed is my new chick?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

What breed is my new chick? He is probably about 4-5 weeks and is off tan with a light brown and tan going down the center of his head getting wider and separating into 2 seperate dark brown stripes with white/black tail feathers and wings. He has tiny "spurs"

and yellow/orange legs and white toenails. Would anyone know what he is by ANY chance? I would post a picture of him but, I don't have any...

Have you tried looking at feathersite? Ok that would take hours...but here is the website in case you find that sort of thing fun:

 

http://feathersite.com/Poultry/BRKPoultryPage.html

 

I have literally spent hours on that website. Chickens are listed alphabetically by breed. Lots of pics when you scroll down on each page.

 

 

Sorry I don't know which breed she/he is.

It is nearly impossible to know from the description what breed it is.  A photo would really help.

(just kidding on the partridge).
