In the Brooder
- Apr 25, 2013
Hi there! I'm new to this board. I've been lurking for a few weeks as we just got our first chicks & are now happy little backyard chicken hobbyists. We have 5 ladies that were sold to us as a Delaware, a Buckeye, a Barred Rock, a Speckled Sussex & and an Australorp. They're all beautiful and perfect and I'm pretty much in love with them. Our Speckled Susses sort of looked like a little brown woodland bird as a baby and as she grows she looks less and less like the Speckled Sussex she's supposed to be. I did some 'research' on this website and think she's actually an Auracana or Easter Egger (but then I saw that Auracana's don't actually have tails? So that wouldn't be her.). She has emerald green feet and is mostly black/brown with gold plumage around her neck. She's gorgeous and multi-colored but certainly not speckled. What do you think? Pics below... she's dark brown.
