Could this be an EE, or maybe a Brahma mutt?

    We got our 6 chicks from a friend who bought 50 of various breeds, both layers and meat birds. We really had no idea what breeds we got at the time. We've since learned that 3 are probably production reds, 2 are leghorns, then there's Phillip. (our sons named her, he's got a weird sense of humor). They're all about 12 weeks old now.

    Any guesses on what Phillip might be? She's a very sweet chick. She isn't shy around us, but isn't fond of being picked up. The closect coloring we could find online is brahma, but her legs are bare.

    Light Sussex! Look almost exactly like brahmas, just without feathered feet. Very pretty!

    Sussex have straight combs, and white legs.

    I'd have to guess Columbian Wyandotte.

    Oh, duh. I completely forgot to look at the comb, but now that you mention it it looks identical to the comb on my SLW.

    I'm gonna have to guess Columbian Wyandotte now also!

    She does look most like a Columbian Wyandotte. We figured she's some sort of mutt. We like her a lot, and we got them for our own source of eggs so we'll keep her whatever she is.

    Thanks for the assessments.
