    I received a mystery chick with my chick order and I am not sure if this one is a Modern Game or an Easter Egger or another breed altogether. We named her Legs from the beginning because she had weirdly long legs when she wanted to stand tall which she doesn't do all the time but when she does wow! She has slate colored legs which I have seen both breeds have, I got other Easter Eggers with my order but she has always looked a little different and doesn't seem to be growing a beard like some EEs do. She also has been one of my most skittish girls who doesn't like being handled. Here are her pictures as she has grown. She is 6 weeks in the last picture. Please tell me what you think, I was thinking she was an EE until yesterday when she stood super tall again, none of my other girls stand as straight up as she can.

    Is this chick the same one in the last photo? It is no longer a chick?

    Yes, these are all pics of the same chick, each picture is one week older then the last picture, so she is 6 weeks old in the last picture.

    It might be a mix with an EE b/c I think modern game should have a long tail by now.
     
  7. It's too heavy-set and has too short of legs to be Modern Game. It would also have reddish eyes if it were a Modern.

    Thanks for all the replies, my hubby is convinced that this girl is something other than EE although I was pretty sure that is what she was. Thanks for the confirmation.

    Its definately not a modern game. A lot of modern games I have seen have seemed to be a lot smaller, and they usually stand tall most of the time
