    Ok so since this was my first time ever going to pick up chicks (or owning chickens for that matter) I just named off a few breeds I wanted to the chicken guy and he placed them in my box I brought. I got one BR 1 B ORP 1 Silkie and 1 speckled sussex. Well on further research I discovered that no, my little sussex was indeed not a speckled sussex so the wait game began. Someone suggested maybe a light sussex? Seemed like it might be bc it's black and white. Well now a month down the line I'm like no that's not it so I scoured the internet until I came across a "Java" chicken. My girl Rex seems like she might be a Java. I'm thinking this is what she is, does anyone else have any other ideas? But whatever she is , she is sweet as can be and beautiful. Has anyone else ever run into this problem? Thanks everyone!!

    [​IMG] she sure is a beauty. Post her photo on "what gender or breed is this," and you probably will get a definite answer.

    Another option is exchequer leghorn. I think Anconas typically have more black.

    Quote:I thought of that but for her size an amount of feathering, I would have thought her comb would have been a little bit bigger. But you are right she could be a leghorn.

    That's right, I don't think she has enough black to be an Ancona. My best guess is Exchequer Leghorn. Either way she's a beautiful girl.
