    Last month we ordered a variety pack of chicks and we can't figure out what breed this chick is. We are new to chickens, so if it is an obvious breed to you guys, I apologize for my ignorance. Still learning! Hopefully the pics attached are helpful.

    I forgot to add that she is four weeks old, so I'm guessing this is what she will look like as an adult, other than her head feathers.

    My best guess is either a Campine , Easter Egger or a Buttercup if she has a buttercup comb.

    Thanks! I read a post on how to take pics for identifying breeds/genders. I love the head shot, too! So cute!
    Oh, and my son named her Eagle. Lol

    I believe she's an EE. Shot of her comb would be telling.

    Looks like an Easter Egger to me.

    Looking like an Easter Egger. :) Campines and Buttercups feather in more orange than your little cutie.

    That's what made me question it as well.
