Any ideas on what breed this chick is?

    Sorry about the not great picture - we have a screen over the brooder, and I knew if I moved it for a better pix, I'd startle the chick and I wouldn't be able to get a pix of just him/her.

    We ordered the variety chicks from Duane Urchs (Not sure I spelled his last name right?) This is a large fowl. It reminds DD & I of a Silver Spangled chick we had last year - but I think he only has silver pencilled. Any chance that is what this is (I half hope the answer is "No" - then that's one less I have to keep, LOL)


    edited to add - my brooder isn't that dirty, the screen is, honest~ [​IMG]

    Well, I looked at your little chick and then I did a search for the silver speckled hamburgs and I think you may just have one of them. Cute little chicky!!! [​IMG]
  3. Silver pencilled chicks have a grey partridge pattern so I think you have a silver spangled chick instead.
