    Hi, I am new to the board but not to chicks:) I raised chickens while growing up, then I moved off and got married and 13 years later have decided to get more chicks and get my kids involved with it. I covered a dog kennel we had with chicken wire, built a pallet coop, and got the chicks from a local farmer. They are in the house right now of course all snuggly under their heat lamp:) I was supposed to get 8 Light Brahma chicks. I was going to pick them up, then drop them back at my house, and then I had to go somewhere else so I was on a time limit and did not get to do more then glance at them in the box when she handed them to me. When I got home from all the errands I got to really take a look and found this one did not look like the rest. No feathers on the feet and dark legs. Anyone have a guess at the breed, or breeds it might be? It is the one I am holding of course:)[​IMG]

    Looks to be an Easter Egger with those green legs. Could feather in white since it is a yellow chick but won't really know until it grows.

    I hope it is an Easter egger! I was debating between getting the Light Brahmas or the Ameraucana and went with the Brahmas. So if I got a variety of colored egg layer that would be great, lol. I thought the kids would love having the different colored eggs but Brahmas are my favorite so I went with those instead, ha.

    Definitely looks like an Easter Egger to me.

    I am so jealous. That is the one breed I wanted that I was not able to get. It is first on the list for next year. Good luck!!
