    this chick I hatched from one of my moms eggs. she is the sweetest chick I ever seen. everytime I go to sit with them she always comes and jumps on my lap or shoulder. when I had them outside she flew up and landed on my shoulder. I just love this chick to pieces. She will be with me forever even if she is a standard breed.

    I was thinking this one could be a guinea/chicken mix but not sure. I think I remember reading somewhere that they said they only live 2 years so I sure hope now its not a mix [​IMG]

    I am not sure, either.

    Do you know for sure that she could be a guinea mix? I read/was told that they could mix, too but that the offspring are sterile.

    Her body shape makes me think of a guinea, tho.

    not for sure her 1 guinea does live with her chickens. The guinea is a male that much we know. I will try to get some better pics of her up.

    A good start would be to list the breeds that your mom has, since you said this came from your mom's eggs. [​IMG]

    Is the male guinea the only male in the hen house?

    She looks like the coloring of and EE and an Italian Brown Leg Horn or an OEB.
    I have a pullet that is almost same feathering and color and the 2 breeds look so much alike (hen wise) that I just have to wait and see if she is bantam or standard.
