    Hi, this chick was donated to me by a school teacher. It was a class project. Came in as a white egg and they hatched the chick in class. She couldn't find a home for it, so I took it in. No idea what breed of chicken this is nor the sex. I currently have 8 hens. Took it in at a bit over a month old. Is growing well but still a bit small to introduce into my flock. If someone can help me identify this breed, I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks in advance!

    Class hatches are almost always mixed breeds. Based on the white egg, blue coloration, clean leg, and single comb, I'd say most likely half Splash Andalusian. The other half could be anything. She's a little pullet, either way.

    I agree defiantly and Andalusian cross. I don't believe its pure either, body shape is not correct for a pure Andalusian.

    Just looked up the breed. I'm hoping that it was crossed with a cold tolerant breed, being that I live in Queens. Then again I have a Golden Cuckoo Marans that survived the winter.
