    We ordered 8 chicks from My Pet Chicken and of the 8, one is a mystery. It is currently 7 weeks old. Can you help us guess the breed? [​IMG]

    Definitely a splash something. Possibly a splash Orpington?

    X2 on the Splash Orpington, seems to have pink/white feet and a single comb... MPC has Blue Orps, so they would have Splash ones.

    Thank you! I am also thinking it is a Splash/Blue orp. :)

    How lucky could I get to randomly click on this looking for my Lulu and find you have already posted a pic that could be her! The thing is, I got mine from Murray McMurray and they don't seem to offer splash orpingtons. I also have another mystery chick that has almost the exact same coloring, but she is VERY fluffy (not feathery fluff, but fluffy fluff), very large (larger than the black cochin roo) and has feathered feet. Is there something else that would have similar coloring? (Mine also have a blueish hue).

    Definitely not a Cochin, they have feathered feet, legs, looks to be what OP are saying a splash Orpington :)

    Christina,

    [​IMG] I agree you have a splash Orpington

    Leann,

    [​IMG] also. From MMM hatchery, I think for splash and feather legged, you're pretty much looking at a cochin. I don't think they offer anything else that matches those two things.

    Actually I'm the one who owes an apology for hijacking the thread. Sorry! I've never had chickens before and I get kinda excited when I get the chance to talk about them to people who are also actually interested in them!
