    So I wanted to get some chicks for my broody hen whose eggs all went bad. I went to my local TSC and sure enough they had some. I didn't want to risk getting more males so I checked to see if they had a pullet bin. Well sure enough they did. Brown Leghorn pullets was what the bin was labeled. So I bought the minimum of 4. Well, as they grew I ended up with 2 males which I do believe are brown leg horns, 1 Easter Egger pullet, and an unknown breed pullet. It ended up being the runt of the group. Can anyone help identify her? She just turned 1 and a half months.

    Comb type? Speckled Sussex? Or I doubt it, but depending on comb, it could be a Russian orlorff, but those are kinda rare for TSC

    Whelp carries them, as well as a few other hatcheries, so it's not impossible.

    than I believe it is, looking at the blurry pics I don’t believe that is a single comb!

    Sorry about the blurry pics, but the chick is very active and doesn't stand still. I will take some more pics tomorrow when they get on the roost.

    I hope it's not a cockerel. I'll take better pics tomorrow when it gets on the roost to sleep with its mom and 3 siblings .

    What color are the legs? Does it have muffs or a beard at all? I think it kinda looks like a speckled sussex. I got a couple Russian Orloffs on accident (labeled as Partridge Chanteclers), and they have HUGE bright yellow legs and puffy cheeks.
