    Hello:
    My babies are 1 1/2 weeks old now.
    [​IMG]
    We have 5 Cuckoo Marans pullets
    [​IMG]
    And 5 White Wyandotte pullets
    [​IMG]
    And 15 Turken pullets, the cuties!!
    [​IMG]
    And 9 Ameraucana pullets, complete with muffs (we lost one on day #2)
    [​IMG]
    This one has me stumped. I have no idea what it is. It's not like my Single Combed Light Brown Leghorn chicks I had last year. I'd love to know if anyone knows what it is. There is a bit of puffy feathering but it's around the BACK of the neck where the light-colored band is.

    Can anyone help me out with this chick? [​IMG] I didn't figure out what the SCLBL chicks were till they were almost 4 months old and the feather pattern was clear enough to know for sure. The feed store sure didn't know! They told me RIR. I knew that was wrong.

    Anyhow, I'm having a grand time with them. The other birds aren't quite so sure about it, but they'll get used to it. 7 are slated for the stewpot as soon as these mature and start laying anyhow, so there will only be 5 left.

    Thanks in advance,

    What kind of comb does the mystery chick have?

    From the coloring on the wings and the speckling around the eyes I'd say a golen laced wynadotte.

    What you see is what you get. I took that pic about an hour ago. They're only a week and a half old.

    I can't tell from the pic whether or not the comb is single or not.

    Yes. A single comb will be a tiny ridge, while a rose comb is flat.
    If it's rose then I think its another EE.

    I doubt it is an EE the leg color is wrong.

    The comb is flat.

    She is bigger than the 9 Ameraucanas and doesn't have muffs like they do.

    Her leg color is the same as all the other birds...light. No blue or anything on any of their legs. The Ameraucana chicks do have muffs, though, all of them.

    She is not as big as the Marans chicks but bigger than the White Wyandottes and the Ameraucanas. Like I said, she has a little fluffy feather piece but it's around the back part of the light area on her neck...look close and you can see it. It's not a muff or a beard.

    It looks to me like she has big feet.

    She kinda looks like the GLW on the Feathersite page...the very first chick on the chick page.
    http://www.feathersite.com/Poultry/CGP/Wyand/BRKWyandChix.html

    Then again, she may be a day or two older than some of them as well since she was in the store brooders and wasn't in with any others her kind. [​IMG]

    I guess I'll find out soon enough, eh?

    Thanks...I'll take another pic soon and maybe we can figure it out then.

    I don't know...[​IMG]
