    Don't know if you can hazard a guess as to a chick's breed, but this little one was one we hatched for preschool about 10 years ago. I never knew what breed or gender it was, and was curious. (It was from a small Eastern Iowa poultry farm, if that helps.) [​IMG]

    do you have a pic of your 10 year old chicken?
    it would be a lot easier to identify [​IMG]

    Ha ha, nope. 10 years old would indeed be easier to identify. Tragically, Peep set fire to her coop at her new home, and died of smoke inhalation a day later.

    I had a little gal like that last year. She was out of a cinnamon queen by a barred rock......her brother came out black and ended up barred before he became dinner. She was a house chicken for a while but eventually found a new home.

    I would say Peep was a white leghorn because of the single comb. Here is a picture of two of my white EEs and they are obviously a white leghorn cross and look a lot like your peep did. [​IMG]

    I'm gonna weigh one in and say White Leghorn. Cornish crosses are much wider and bigger, this bird has a single comb, and a thin, production type body, and Leghorns are pretty common.
