    Im new to chickens, just a year into it.
    LOVING IT.. I have the best girls.
    But I bought a handful of chicks in the spring at the feed store, was told they were Faverolles, and the rest ARE..
    but what this chick is I have no idea.

    Help?

    Hi there,
    Well, first up, I'm no expert, but she sure looks like a Speckled Sussex. Whatever she is, she's pretty! Sue

    Sussex are mahogany and black and white, with white skin.

    this hen might be something like a mottled Java? I'm not that familiar with Javas, but that's all that comes to mind.
