We received this handsome fellow as a day old chick (all reddish brown with dark "naked legs") in a batch of feathered fancy chicks. He was a mystery then...and still is. We thought he might be an Americana, but when we ordered more of them they were not a match. Any ideas out there?
But won't their general body make up be similar? He has a different shaped head than our EEs; and their cheek puffs are well pronounced, and he just has white dots. Sorry if I sound difficult, we've just been looking at bird after bird. He's got bits and pieces of many! UGH!!
Well, howdy back from SOUTH Central Kansas! The hatchery says he is in fact an Americana. Our other three are 2 gals and a boy, but they are still pretty young. They took a beating in the rain we got this past weekend (but I'm NOT complaining that we're FINALLY getting rain to fill up the creeks and ponds), but the kids wanted pictures of their babies.
The rest of our flock includes: both white and black langshan hens and roosters, cochin hens that are blue, red, buff, and silver-laced, a gray barred cochin rooster, and a light brahma hen. We've got almost 30 in all. These critters are addictive! It's funny how they each have their own personalities.
