Need help identifying this little chick!!

Discussion in 'What Breed Or Gender is This?' started by Three Cedars Silkies, Jun 20, 2008.

  1. These babies hatched yesterday/last night. We were expecting a combination of white leghorns, light brahmas, RIR's and americaunas. This is what the gentleman said when we bought the eggs from him. Since this was our first hatch, we decided to go with local fertilized eggs first and progress to shipped eggs. We got 3 light brahmas, 2 americaunas, 8 white leghorns and 2 of these:

    They are a chocolate brown with a tiny bit of white on the tips of their wings and a bit lighter underneath.

    I have NO idea what this chick is....does anyone else?? BTW they came out of cream to pale brown eggs.

    That chocolate looks alot like the EE I hatched in May. Although that one came from a pale green egg.

    Good luck figuring it out. It's adorable [​IMG]

    Don't know never asked it was a flea mkt chick But it has a beard and muffs. Although it is also a mix as it has a single comb. When I posted mine to find out what they were someone said they looked like ameraucanas they got from TSC
