    Hey I’ve been asking a lot of serious questions lately so here’s a fun one. What breed do you all think this baby is? I got her/him with a batch of meat chicks. It has a single comb but that’s all I can guess.

    could it be a red ranger?

    There's a whole ton of breeds that are reddish, single combed and yellow legged. Give it some time for feathers to come in and we can go from there.

    I’m pretty sure it’s not a RR it was the mystery chick that came with my rangers. The others don’t look like him at all. They’re red/buff colored and He’s got golden on the feather and looks chip mink striped.

    My 1st impression is that the chick is a male Welsummer. I'll be curious to see what it grows into. :idunno

    That’s what I thought too as well as the possibility of brown leghorn or befiellder. I think for the 4-H records I’ll put down a guess and surprise them.

    Thanks everyone! I have found it be a Welsummer. Now hoping it survives!

    Updated pictures. I’m leaning near towards 90% Welsummer
