    Is this 10 week old bantam a Hamburg, Dutch or something different? Also, we are calling her a SHE. We assume so anyway. She is among the first of 7 chicks we randomly picked from a local feed store.

    I don't think the hatcheries have Hamburgs in white. they are usually Silver Spangled. So, I'd guess that she's a Dutch.

    I'll go check on the comb. I'll look as close as I can. She's the one who is impossible to catch. She just really doesn't like people it seems. I'll report on her comb ASAP.

    She's a bantam.

    Yea, those legs aren't like the others. The color I mean. That's what's weird to us. Also, we are brand new to chickens. This is our first ones. I've been getting as much information on raising chickens from magazines and the computer.

    I will be back.

    the station doesn't look quite right for a dutch but it might just be the pic.

    Everything about her (and I do think her, at ten weeks and that little comb development) screams Hamburg, except the fact she's white. On the other hand: hatchery Hamburgs are not exactly famous for holding to breed type, and pure white sports are pretty common in every black-and-white breed of every animal I've raised.

    Okay, so I tried to get a better picture of her comb. She does have much of one for some reason. It's just the tiniest thing. Also, it's very pale in color. I'm not sure if her comb is single or rose. Anyone know? I hope the pictures help.[​IMG][​IMG]
