    A co-worker of my husband's gave this chick to us about a week ago. Her lab (dog) brought it inside in his mouth - unharmed! It seems really tiny to be getting its permanent feathers but any help in figuring out details about its breed are greatly appreciated.

    Looks Wellsummery to me, too... but I reserve the right to change my opinion as he/she ages! [​IMG]

    It looks to me about the right size for a chick to have so many feathers. Easter Egger maybe? I don't see any tufts though. Very cute!

    Never mind, legs are the wrong color for an Easter Egger.

    I have a three week old welsummer chick - and it's darker than that.

    Welsummer males are darker than females. Sorry I meant females are darker than males

    OK, what about a brown leghorn? Aren't the females similar to Welsummers?
