    This chick hatched from a small whitish egg 6 days ago. First pic is at day one, the two on the table are from today (day 6). She seems to be a bantam with a bit of a top knot and feathered legs. I bought the eggs from a seller on eBay who said in her ad:
    You will receive 12+ eggs from my mixed flock and from my pure breed pens! the offspring from these eggs will be one of a kind mixes or could be pure breed! (You will get both kinds) The pure breeds you could get are - Black Copper Marans, Cream Legbar, Naked Neck Frizzled Olive Egger, Frizzled Olive Egger, Super Dark Olive Egger, and Silkies. About 80% of this flock lay chocolate, blue or green(all shades) eggs and the rest lay pink, cream to brown & white eggs.The roosters in my mixed pen are -2 Welsummer, 2 Frizzled Olive Eggers, 2 black Sizzles, 1 White & Yellow Turken, 1 dark Olive Eggers, 1 Black Frizzle Cochin, 1 Blue Ameraucana, 1 Cream Legbar and 1 Easter Egger, 1 Black Sumatra and 1 black & white Silkie. The hens in this pen are - 2 Frizzled Olive Eggers, 3 Welsummer, 2 Olive Eggers, 1 black Frizzle Cochin, 2 Blue Ameraucana, 1 Cream Legbar, 3 Easter Eggers, 1 Mille Fleur D'Uccle, 1 Salmon Faverolles, 1 White Crested Black Polish, 1 Buckeye, 1 Blue Andalusian, 3 Silkies asst. colors, 4 Black Copper Marans, 1 Sicilian Buttercup, 1 Blue Naked Neck Olive Egger, 1 Blue Olive Egger, 1 Silver Cuckoo Marans, 1 BCM, and 1 White Showgirl.

    My kids have asked me to reach out to you all to help identify her. Thanks in advance.[​IMG]

    Seems to be a blue frizzled Cochin mix with a top knot. Very cute and very skittish.
