    I got this little buddy at TSC, does anyone have an idea of the breed? I have one particular in mind that I thought it may be, but after looking at a few posts, I may be wrong. It is 3 weeks old. Any guesses? Thank you!! [​IMG]

    I think I see a single comb. To me it looks like a Millie fluer d'uccle.

    Thank you! I was originally thinking Buff Brahma, then saw some other posts that were being identified as Millie fleur D'uccle.

    I don't see a beard, I've never had a bearded chicken... not sure what to look for.

    It does seem to have a single comb and the legs are turning gray/dark.

    It stands like a d'uccle. Some have slight beards when young. I'm sticking with d'uccle.

    I think you are right! I just checked and the Buff Brahma has pink/peach legs and feet. The D'uccle has the gray feet and legs. I was worried by the stance it was a rooster, but from what I read a D'uccle roo would have a much larger redder comb at this point. I appreciate the help! [​IMG][​IMG]
