    This sweet little baby arrived today from the hatchery along with 40 baby Buff Orpingtons. I do not know what her breed is. She is just a little bit bigger than the BO's. She is absolutely beautiful! I didn't see any hairy feet on her. Was the best picture I could get of her.

    Not an expert but maybe a Barred Plymouth Rock? I have a BPR hen and she looked like that as a chick.

    The spot on the head simply means the chick is barred. It can be yellow, cream or white, doesn't matter. A straight combed clean legged barred bird from a hatchery is going to be either a cuckoo Marans or a barred Rock....or a male black sex link. The light skin has me leaning towards Marans, but you'll know more at a few weeks old.
