    I am new to this board, have lurked some, but this is my first post. My name is Patty and I live in Riverside, CA. Yesterday I saw this at a pet store next to the cash register, with a "free chick" sign on it. It is underweight, stunted looking. Probably an "easter chick" I'm guessing. Anyhow, took it home, immediately ate and drank, slept under the brooder light, walks normally, appears healthy. Any ideas what breed it might be? I'm hoping for NOT a fighting cock mix, and figured blue splash was an unlikely color for it to be that, but who knows?[​IMG]

    Anyone recognize what kind this might be? Thanks for looking.

    If only you had some 'history' on it. It almost looks like a California grey but I am not sure. It could be a blue leghorn bantam, or a blue plymouth rock, there are many possibilities.

    I would guess that it is an Andalusa (Splash in color). They are primarily very pretty egg laying chickens.

    It is not an Andalusian, they have blue legs. I am going to say Blue Rock.
