    He/she is 17-18 weeks old. Mostly my concern stems from the feathers on the neck above the black ones. They are quite "pointy"

    At that age, it should be a pullet.

    It's got something Red in the ancestry, but I'm not sure it's Rhode Island. Those white legs could mean she's mixed with Orpington, but that usually gives a brighter orange colored bird. I'd just call her a red brown egg layer.

    Well I'm not going to consider it 100% but I'm glad to hear there's a chance. She was my favorite chick and already 4/7 "hens" I got turned out to be roos...5/7 would have been painful! Haha...anybody else feel free to chime in with your thoughts.

    I believe that is a mixed breed pullet. She's very pretty. :)

    Pullet but unsure of breed, RIR & maybe Orpington (donrae) cause she looks "fluffy"....Pretty coloring. Need a better pix of the black one...
