The store had a whole poster of chickens and what the chicks looked like.. But this one wasn't on there. Any ideas? Very docile compared to the rest of the straight run chicks.

Thank you in advance,
Jasmine

Thanks for your input, I just can't figure it out. It has some dark brown feathers coming in between its shoulders with whitish tips.
Most of the breeds that are reddish or buff come in like that. So, that bird could be a number of breeds. You are probably best waiting till it is fully feathered and asking then.

Also, what color legs does this chick have. Most of the reddish buff breeds have yellow legs (and this birds look off colored) that might help us narrow down a breed.

Okay, that is understandable. Its legs are yellow down the frot and back of its legs and down the top of its toes, and basically pink everywhere else in between, lol. I should just get another photo. Lol

If that is the case, it could still be any of the yellow legged breeds. Most chicks that hatch looking like that are hatchery production reds, some sort of red hybrid, or new Hamsphires. But, posting some photos after the chick feathers out, should give you an answer.

Okay, I'll do that. For now, these are on it. How long until I should take another photo and ask? I think it is like 2 weeks old.

How long it takes for a bird to feather varies with bred, bloodline, and sometime gender (usually pullets feather out faster). But at around 5 - 7 weeks of age, it should be feathered out enough.

It depends on how quickly they feather out, but probably any time after 5/6 weeks, potentially even 7/8 weeks old. :) They're awful cute!

Thank you, I can't wait for it to feather out and figure out the sex. Either way we named it Griffin. Lol.
