    I am a proud new chicken owner of 5 chicks all of different breeds. The lady I bought them from orders large amounts and then resells. I picked them up this morning. I have 1- Buff Orpington, 1- White Orpington, 1- Barred Rock and 1- buff Silkie. I also have 1 chick that may be an Americana but the woman said that unlike all of the others (which were purchased yesterday) this one does not have green legs. Any help with IDing this little cutie is appreciated.

    I'm going to call it as a Brown Leghorn. Watch the leg color, as it will tell you a lot. White, yellow, green...I expect the legs to yellow up, and I'm thinking the eye stripe isn't that of the Wellie.

    Looks very much like a welsummer to me. Is the V on the head really defined? Welsummer females have very sharp and defined and the males are more smudgy. She also has eyeliner, which makes me thing welsummer.
