    On Valentines Day I got some chicks from theisens. I wanted 3 easter eggers and one buff orpington. In a pullet brooder I was told that there was Ameraucanas (which I don't think are true ameraucanas), Buff Orpingtons, ad Rhode Island Reds. I picked out my easter egger and the worker told me which one would be a buff Orpington. I do not think that this it is a buff because the feathers that are coming in are white and a little black. She is now a week old and I have now clue what breed she is. All that I can think of is a black and white easter egger.

    This is when she was 3 days old

    This is her at a week old. Notice the feathers that are coming in are black and white

    So what is your best guess on what breed she is?

    It's prob a EE that's what most hatcherys throw in as a mystery chick but that's just a guess

    Not a Buff Orpington. Since it doesn't have puffy cheeks or dark legs, it also isn't an Easter Egger. Not a Rhode Island Red, either. Perhaps the hatchery Theisens got the chicks from sent some extra, different breeds. It doesn't seem to fit any breed that I can think of right now, though.

    I'm with BantamLover. She's not an Orp, and not an EE.

    Post again when it's feathered, about 5-6 weeks.

    Agree, definitely not an EE or anything else I recognize for now. Updated pictures in several weeks would be very helpful! [​IMG]
