    Hi All!
    I've been lurking here for months, learning SOOO much! Thanks for all of the great info everyone!
    I'm having trouble identifying our new chick whose name is currently Free Rare. She(hopeful, but doubtful) came from McMurray, with 27 Cornish Crosses, who are nearly double her size after 2 weeks. Can anyone tell me what Breed she is?

    It is really hard to tell at this age, what kind of comb does it have?

    That chick doesn't look anything like my wyondottes did as chicks. But i wonder if it looks like a Roo because of the different colored middle in the comb?

    I can't place it. The closest thing I could say it looked like is a Mottled Ancona chick. Looks like it has a rose comb from that last picture and some Anconas do have those, but this baby has bars on its wings, right?
