I've figured out all my chickens except this one.
maybe a minorca?
thanks in advance!
It looks like minorcas have grayer legs and much bigger ear lobes. How big is it and how old?
ETA Is that a same age Ancona behind it (for size reference)?
yes, the ancona behind it is approximately the same age. late feb 2016 hatch. the eggs aren't paper-white, either. ancona egg on the left, unknown chicken's egg on right. i was looking through breed pics and the andalusian comb looks the same as this one's.
edit: i think that's it! Black Andalusian.
Possibly a dark brown Leghorn?
Maybe a Minorca x Brown Leghorn cross. Would explain the light legs and red leakage.
i got them all from a feed store. she told me what they all were, but i didn't know anything about chickens and the names all whirled around in my head until they became gibberish. lol. now, a year on, they all seem obvious. point being, i don't recall her mentioning any crosses. there are two sicilian buttercups, a la fleche, an ancona, and ameraucana and a buff orpington. and this one. lol. it doesn't really matter except that it'll drive me a bit bonkers if i don't know.
and i do recall her saying something about a leghorn... idk. for the longest time i thought the ancona was the leghorn.
pretty sure the bird in question is the 3rd from the left.
should be the bird on the far right in the lower image
The color is wrong for a Minorca. I suppose it could be a hatchery quality one, though.
