    Aloha everyone,

    I haven't been to the boards for a long time, been busy & there's not much going on w/my RSLs except for the fact I think they've slowed down in laying (they're both almost 3).

    ANYWAY the reason I'm here is I am sure someone can help me with the latest addition to my chicken fam. Who can tell me knows what this little cutie is? [​IMG] I'm envious of you guys who can get clear pics!


    TY in advance!

    Aloha ChickNHawaii,

    I am not too sure but it could be a game type bird. BBR or BBS type. Unless you got it form a local feed store, I can only guess it is an EE without a Beard. What kind of comb does it have? Where did you get the cute little Bebe from?

    I'd guess some type of game bird as well.

    Give it a week or two and we'll be able to tell better as the comb isn't clearly visible.

    that type of coloring can sometimes also be a Silver Laced Wyandotte, but it looks to small to be that.

    TY for the replies! So far it seems almost everyone has picked a different breed so it'll be interesting to see what this little one becomes. [​IMG]

    I don't have any history on it, it's a rescue from my friend's yard - this & its sibling were in the rain the other night. The sib was all black & didn't make it. [​IMG] Her neighbor's hen had laid a clutch in her garage so I assume that this is one of those chicks.

    There's no comb visible yet - here are a couple more pics.

    I was thinking & hoping for an EE though hehe. ^_^ Will keep updating!

    Quote:Aloha,

    When i looked at the picture it definitely has a single comb. So I want to say it is a Game birds chick. IF you could get the picture of the possible mother I definitely think it is a BBR type game bird. But so cute the picture and the little one looks really healthy. You are a Great foster MOM! I can't wait to see what the chick will be when it gets older...

    That has to be the most STUNNING chick color I've seen in a long time. Just beautiful.
