Thread Starter 

Im new to chickens, just a year into it.

LOVING IT.. I have the best girls.

But I bought a handful of chicks in the spring at the feed store, was told they were Faverolles, and the rest ARE..

but what this chick is I have no idea.

 

Help?

Hi there,

                    Well, first up, I'm no expert, but she sure looks like a Speckled Sussex. Whatever she is, she's pretty! Sue

Sussex are mahogany and black and white, with white skin.

 

this hen might be something like a mottled Java? I'm not that familiar with Javas, but that's all that comes to mind.
