    We have silkies, but my inlaws next door have taken in some stray chickens. One is a light red, I'm thinking a New Hampshire Red or Red Sex Link (from what I've been reading on here) and the rooster is a bantam, my husband thinks it's called an Old game or something like that.

    I need to get pics of them to properly identify them, but here is their love child. She is starting to get White and black barrs on her feathers, which are coming in fast. This photo was taken about Wed. when the chick was a week old.

    There was a Barred Rock Or Copper Maran over there, but it was killed, and we don't think it was the parent.

    Is it a boy or girl? And how do you tell, as they have another love child on the way. : >

    After telepathically sending messages to the chick...I'm thinking a cockerel. Whatever that breed is....the chick and I are still confused...

    Thanks so much for the replies. Hopefully, someone can tell for sure!

    I use a Canon 40D camera and shot this with a 28-135 IS lense in my studio.

    I'm sure EE is in there SOMEWHERE! lol! I know that my Speckled Sussex had those same lines down the back when she was a chick, but she was more reddish in color all over.
