    Hello,
    I'm a new member and looking for some help with this breed. I was told Speckled Sussex when she was a week old. However, she looks nothing like any images I've seen on BYC.[​IMG]

    Well, she's not speckled, is she? She may be a light Sussex, though. What color are her legs? Sussex should be a white/pinkish color. I just can't tell well enough from the pic. How old is she and where did you get her?

    Definitely not a Speckled Sussex; could be a poorly-colored Light Sussex. Could you get a close-up photo of her head, and tell us what color her legs are? Whatever she is, she's a cute little bird! [​IMG]

    I am afraid that she is just a crossbred pullet.

    I was thinking one of the leghorn crosses until I read the feathered leg part. I'm with Sourland, she's a mixed breed pullet.
