Can someone help me decide what breed this chicken is? I got a "Rare Breed Pullet Special" from Ideal Poultry the first of February. So this chick is 4 months old. I didn't take this picture sideways, but I can't figure out how to rotate it. The white feathers go all the way around the neck. Thanks in advance! Darla

it's a Campine. The ears are white on this breed, as opposed to the red ears that Fayoumis have

my Fayoumis have white ears - some think the Campine is a descendent of the Fayoumi brought north way back when the Romans came up from the south ...and they brought it from Egypt ....i suppose these day they could do genetic testing though ...

Together with the flock
I would say a Silver Campine because of the earlobe color and Egyptian Fayoumis are more delicate looking and skinnier than than Campines.

She's a Campine. They do look very similar though! Pretty bird, I love her coloration.
