    It does look like a Pheonix..and with the brown in her chest..I would say SHE is going to be a great girl for your flock.

    This is the little roo, at 3 months.

    Is it just me, or does that chick have fluffy cheeks?
    At first glance I thought it looked just like my silver easteregger hen did when she was a chick, but had another look at the first photo and am seeing way too much color on back and wings. [​IMG]

    The chick looks like it got a pea comb....I am almost certain that it is a EE.

    Phoenix chicks looks a bit like Silver leghorn chicks...
