    To me it looks to be a mix breed.

    If she came from a hatchery, she'd be a black sex link. If not, she could be a mixed breed bird. That's common coloring when you mix a black bird with a red bird.

    Yes i think your right. She was just more odd looking then the rest of my chicks. But i do have one more who is so pretty. Her i hope her feathers are very soft and fluffy her face has a yellowish hue and she is very docile. Maybe you can help me with this one too..[​IMG]

    Where did she come from? Does she have feathered legs? What color are her legs and what kind of comb does she have?

    Well shes a hard one to photo but she has half feathered legs they are normal yellow color she doesnt have a comb as of yet her beak is large and tipped in black. And around her face is pale yellow in color also...her feathers are pretty loose too the wind blows and messes her feathers up. [​IMG]
