    Here are a few pics of my mystery chick. I am not worried about sex yet. Just trying to figure her out the best way to describe her markings is like a red hawk.

    As far as breed goes, it looks similar to my partridge rocks... Just a guess though...

    I purchased an EE from Agway two weeks ago with almost the same markings. Unfortunatly, it died suddenly this weekend. We called it a "chicken hawk" because of its markings.

    Can you tell what kind of comb it has? Single would look like a small single straight serrated line; Cushion, Pea, or Rose would look be a triangularish flattish fleshy patch that may or may not have a few bumps in it; Buttercup would be two kind of serrated lines that meet towards the back of the head.

    Her head will lighten up to be silvery... I would never have guessed that a brown headed chick could become a white headed one!!!

    Good luck!!! Have fun with her!

    If she is Egyptian then it is time for the kids to do more research on Egyptian goddess. I got two Egyptian pullets from a friend and the kids named them Isis and Hathore. [​IMG]

    Looking at the website she matches the chicks on there. [​IMG]
