This was a mystery chick from MPC. This pullet is 4 weeks old.
Wow very pretty! looks like a Barnevelder.
what kind of comb does she have?
I got 4 Barnevelders from MPC this month!
Speckled Sussex -- we have one that looks very similar.
That would be my guess. White legs, speckles coming in. If it is, in a few weeks, the speckles will really start to show around it's head. I would also guess it to be a female. I love my SS. The eggs are smaller than other breeds, but they all lay one almost everyday. Also, they make a great looking and tasty table bird. Their feathering is beautiful when they get out in the sunlight.
OH, you are so lucky if that is a speckled sussex! They are sooooo pretty! I have a pullet and she is a dollbaby! Very big now, and she's such a character! Now I wish I had a rooster......
Hollywood Chicks: What else did you get from MPC? It was very exciting to get a mystery batch.
Here's another pic. Tried to get a close up. I'm hoping this is the same little girl . . . I have 2 more that look very similar.
They are very pretty.
Quote:I'd love to see pics. Do you have any?
My SS looks like that too. She's 3 weeks old now, and her speckles are getting brighter on the newly emerging feathers, At first I was disappointed cuz they were all tan colored spots, but they are getting sharper on the new feathers.
Quote:Did your baby chicks have really yellow bellies? I checked out MPC to see if I could determine which chicks they shipped by their pics. and the SS had really yellow bellies -- I had one that didn't make it and was very upset. These other three that are starting to look like SS look exactly like the pic. just not so yellow on the belly.
I got a SS from MPC also in my variety pack. I just posted a few other pictures. See if any of them look familiar to you. Also I did get 5 yellow/white/cream birds.
