    This is a standard size chick, not a bantam. And the only one that hatched looking like this (or anywhere close to it). Should be purebred as all parent stock were housed separately. Thank you for any guesses or comments!! [​IMG]

    Doesn't look purebred to me. Resembles my dominant white x black crosses. What are the "options" as far as breeds you have? I would guess somebody made a great escape somehow. Black Australorp vs white something.
     
  3. Oh my gosh, it's soooo cute! It needs a super-cool name!!!

    Quote:I bought these unmarked eggs from another breeder who was moving out of state. He had quite a few different breeds - turken, BA, RIR, silver phoenix, blue andalusian, kreienkoppe... there might have been more. So far as I know all were housed separately, but if it's a mix, it's a cute one and I don't mind.

    My guess would be exchequer leghorn. I think you should name it Spot. [​IMG]

    Quote:That would be mine too, as I've never seen any other color variety show such an interesting pattern as a chick.
