This one has me stumped, but that's not hard to do since I'm a newbie to chicken farming.
She does look quailish.....That chick does have a Bobwhite look to it! But she's a chicken.....See that single comb? But I do see what you're noticing!
Well, if she is an EE, she sure don't look like her sisters. Here's one of my EE's and she is twice as big as 'Mystery Lady'.
Where'd ya get her from? That looks a bit like the pics of speckled sussexes I've seen. I was looking at chick pics one day and even my 8y/o wanted to know how the nice lady (in the pic) got such a big bobwhite baby.
Hmmm looked at the Sussex and it looks like she could grow up to be something like this one:
Quote:Haha Chin... my hubby ordered them on-line and they came as an 'assortment pack'... and are they EVER! We ordered 2 dozen, got 25, and lost 4 right away. Poor little things just never would start drinking or eating. They were so weak - we did everything we could incuding trying to dropper feed them water. We had a funeral a day for the first 3 days, then 2 days later had the last one. It seems like the rest are pretty healthy - with the exception of one lady with a prolapse. But she is eating and drinking so we're hoping she makes it.
My first thought was a welsummer cockerel but sussex looks similar. EEs can look so different. I would think thought that it is male.
I don't know on the breed, but I'm sure that's a little cockerel there. The comb is way too big for it to be a pullet at that age.
