    I have a chick that looked like a rhode island red for the first two weeks but when she started feathering out she grew so interesting race stripes on her breast and down her wings. She now has predominant brownish red fethers as stripes, light red feathers for the main body and now has three rows of combs. one larger row in the middle flanled by two smaller combs on the sides. i am trying to get a decent pic to send but not enough light right now. any guesses before i send the pic.

    Here are some picks. The light feathers have a reddish tinge although in the picks they look white.

    I had hopes that if i said she enough it would magically be a she. figured it was a roo. looks like my batch of twelve is down to about 9 when i do a cull.
