    I finally figured out that I have a Buff Orpington chick but I can't figure out the 2nd one despite looking at photos all over this forum! Any help or guess would be appreciated! Thanks!

    ***UPDATE***

    Thanks for the guesses below! I thought everyone was correct that my lovely chick (Pepper) was an EE, but recently I noticed that she/he (?) has got feathers sticking out of its ears...sort of like Dumbo. Does she still belong to the EE breed? What's up with those feathers on the ears! Any help appreciated again! [​IMG]

    That chick looks like the one we have that was sold as an Araucuna.

    Based on the fluffy down around her cheeks and chin, she looks like an EE.

    Looks like an EE, what type of comb does it have?

    What color are the legs? In the pic the look kinda dark/green? but that could just be due to shadows/lighting in the pic. If they are greenish or dark tinted then I would guess probably EE. Sould be a beautiful bird when grown with those colors!
