    Hi! I'm hoping someone can help me figure out if my 10 week old, Brownie, is a boy or a girl. Also, I know her dad is a Buff Orpington, but her mom is a mystery...I hatched her from a batch of eBay eggs that were advertised as purebred Buff Orpington eggs, so imagine our surprise on hatch day [​IMG]. The eBay seller said she must have mixed up the eggs, but that her only rooster is a Buff Orpington, and her only hens are Buff Orpingtons, Dominique, and Buff/Easter Egger cross. Brownie hatched from a light brown egg like all my others. (The others, by the way, are all blonde, but definitely look a little mixed breed as well)! I didn't listen to the eBay egg warnings, but I love my babies just the same!! Please let me know what you think. I'll post additional pictures too.

    Brownie is a pullet. As for her breed, she's a mix. My guess is that she's mixed with the Buff Orpington/Easter Egger, as that would explain the greyish legs and single comb.
