This is penguin, one of my new chicks
What is she?
Looks like it could possibly be a Mottled Cochin.
I dont think it would be mottled with what seems to be buff down. I would bet on cochin, but not sure of the variety.
Here's a pic of a 4 day old Mottled Cochin chicks...
Hope this helps!
Quote:They do have slightly more marked faces, but that does look like her! Plus I got them from an assortment of feather leg standards, so it would make sense
They are black Australorp chicks. I have two of them myself. The do look like penguins when they are chicks but will be solid black as hens.
It wouldn't be an australorp because of the feathering on the legs... but it may be either black or mottled cochin. I am still trying to figure out the adult colouring of some i just hatched so I am no help to you there!
Good point on the feathering on the legs! I missed that.
