    My Sister in law (that has 20+ pet chickens) picked up feed at store where they were also selling chicks. She asked about the interesting feathers (initially her fathers stuck out similar to a sizzle/frizzle) they told her it was a RO and sort of being run over by the other chicks so she could just have it. She was already planning to give me a naked neck chick and ameraucana chick for my birthday to add to my three almost year old pullets, so she threw this supposed RO into the mix too. Contacted the RObsociety and they said it's not an RO. [​IMG][​IMG][/IMG]

    Nope, not an Orloff.

    Cute though, and hope someone can ID it for you.

    This could be several breads... I'm thinking Bielefelder or Barnevelder. Chicks like these are so hard to identify, so if neither of those seem to look like yours you might have to wait until it's full grown.

    After looking into it, I believe there is a strong possibility of it being a welsummer chick.
