    This is definitely not a Rhode Island Red. Where did you get it?

    I'm not sure what breed it is. The color pattern of the fluff kind of looks like a Welsummer, Speckled Sussex, or a Brown Leghorn, but it is too light. Also, the wing feathers coming in are quite dark. Post more pictures in a few weeks, and I (or somebody else) will be able to more accurately determine the breed.

    i would say it could be a welsummer, if the egg was dark brown it is for sure!

    The egg color isnt dark enough to be a welsummer. It looks like an RIR egg, but that chick dosent have the right markings. Maybe it is just a mixed breed.
