    I know all chickens go through an ugly, awkward stage, but this one is really looking ugly lately! The guy I bought her from sold her as a Buff Orp, but she is definitely not that. I am new to chickens, but I can't find another chicken like her. She was a yellow chick and her feathers started coming in white, so I thought at first Leghorn. But now she has these red feathers coming in stripes on her back and wings. Her feet are yellow. I am thinking now she is a mutt of some kind. Any guesses??

    She is on the right....

    Umm.. I have to say it.. are you sure she isn't a he?

    Chicks do go through that 'awkward' teen stage. I can't wait to see what they grow into!

    Quote:Hush your mouth!! LOL I know that she has a comb, but it is not red at all. I'll keep an eye on "her." It wouldn't be the first time I was sold a pullet that turned out to be a roo. I already have one roo in my small flock.....really don't need two [​IMG]

    Our Golden Comets have white feathers on the wings and then grow in red stripes later... But I am new at this and totally suck at "guess the breed" games [​IMG]
