    I dont know about it being a jubilee. Its leg color is wrong and its beak also.

    Sorry I can't tell what your fuzzy chick is either, but welcome and come hang out with us in the coop!!! There are very nice folks here that will be glad to help you. When your chick gets a little older, please post more pictures and we'll see what we can do. [​IMG]

    I don't know how common jubilee orps are in new zealand, but they are rare here, if you where in the states I would say it more likely you got a speckled sussex. There are a lot of colors that start out as "chipmunk" colored chicks.

    Quote:are you sure its an orp chick? the color of the legs are wrong...Honestly the color of the legs and the chick make me think easter egger. also going by the wing color its not going to be a red based bird. [​IMG] sorry.

    My chicks almost always hatch out with a different colour leg to what they have when they're adult.

    Wait two weeks and post another photo. I'll be able to better tell then :)

    Many chicks start out looking similar. It will take come time to see what's what. However a silky in the mix will not yield a Jubilee Orpington. Jubilees are not easy to develop.

    Sorry ,
