I just added some more pictures...pls check page two.


Can anyone tell me what color this is in this messy looking chick? It is not dirty, it just always looks dirty and ruffled.
Chick #2...has a long neck and legs. The neck and head are a rich auburn-brown in color. Does anyone know what breed?

CHICK #1



CHICK #2

Don't think so. I have 2 and they look nothing like that. My other two, which is how many I am supposed to have, have nice, noticeable cheek feathers, and their necks are not nearly as long as the 2nd chick. These don't appear to have cheek feathers at all...I do know that Amer, sometimes do not.

The second chick looks like my partridge rocks did as chicks. If it has a straight comb that's probably what it is. Feathers will come in barred, then penciled later in adolescence. They're gorgeous ladies.

the 2nd chick has feet that are actually a gold color and looks like the tops have had a newspaper wiped across the top!

Why do the feathers on chick #1 always look so sloppy? S/he looks like a bad hair day, every day. None of my others look like that!
