    I got two Speckled Sussex about 9 weeks ago, and one of them looks like this. Anyone out there have some ideas on what type of chicken this sweet little lady is?

    Where did you get your chicks from? She definitely isn't a Speckled Sussex, but she doesn't look like any other pure breed I know of, either. Could be a mix.

    From our local feed store...maybe one of the infamous 'barnyard mixes' I've heard about?

    Looks a lot like just a random mix to me. The closest she comes to is a Black Sex-Link, but they usually have more black and darker legs.

    Thank you for your reply. The bright yellow legs and feet turned that color a couple weeks ago. When she was a baby chick she looked like a dust version of her speckled Sussex sister.

    She definitely looks like a mixed breed.
