    Francesca is about 4 weeks old. Barnyard mix? Female?

    Looks mixed, and could be female although too early to say for sure. Sometimes they sprout a comb later, especially with mixed birds. Where did you get it? Do you know what it is supposed to be, or just a mixed breed?

    From a nice lady with beautiful chickens that all live together. She's pretty sure she came from a green egg. She and some people who were there when I picked her up seemed to think she's part Americauna because she has puffy cheeks and she does have some in her flock.

    Pretty little chick, if the chick came from a green egg, it is a barn yard mix that most people would call an Easter Egger. A mixed chicken that has Ameraucana/Araucanas in their ancestry. It's too young to really say boy or girl, but I'm not seeing anything that screams rooster, though in an Easter Egger that color often is.
