    Sold to me by a fancy feed store that screwed up (supposed to be a wheaton ameraucana). any guesses on the breed and/or gender? Even Bresse chickens are possible from this place. It's about 4 weeks old but a little smaller than the 2 other chicks.[​IMG][/IMG]

    White Orpington is way more likely than Bresse.

    I know, I only mention it because Bresse is supposed to be one of their specialties

    Doesn't look heavy enough built for an Orpington.

    It's really hard to judge build on 3 to 4 week old chick...

    Not if they are English Orpingtons. I raise Blacks, Jubilees, and Buffs. And by 4 weeks there big chunky things lol.
