    The others are RIR. The feathers look different to me. It also has a back line on the side of the face through the eyes.

    I think we have a winner. I just looked up a speckled Sussex chick and it's a dead ringer. Thanks SueT!

    Here's my S Sussex as a baby. As yours it gets its feathers, you should be able to tell for sure.

    Could be a Speckled Sussex, Welsummer, Brown Leghorn, etc. We'll have a better idea when it is older.
