    Sorry these are cellphone pics (all I have)...

    I'd previously asked for help identifying this buff chick from Ideal marked "mixed large breed pullets)

    I'd first hoped her to be a buff orp, but due more yellow in legs now (and Ms Prissy's suggestion) she could be a Buff Rock... ? Or another suggestion was a Red Sex-link?

    The most recent pic shows some barred looking rusty tones on creamy white feathers... Do Buff Rocks start feathering out with barred or mottled feathers?

    But first here she was about a week ago... on May 1


    May 8- new tail feathers showing barred pattern?

    May 8- another shot...

    Then today I noticed new chest feathers that are darker golden or rusty (more solid darker color) compared to the feathers seen in pictures above. I really have no idea at this point even after looking up pictures of all the breeds mentioned (at young ages).

    Is a Comet a gold sex-link? is that a possiblity? Personality wise she is the most skittish of all. the others fly up on my lap, or climb up my arm and let me pet them. Anyway, so far... what do you think?

    If "she" is a red sex link, it is a boy because the boys feather in white. I'm not sure what it is. What type of comb does it have? I don't think it is a buff orp or a buff rock with the odd colored feathers coming in.
