    I got some chicks today and while most of them are sexed we got 5 free straight run for being one of the first 50 customers. We have decided two are silver laced wyondette, one is a brown leghorn, one is some sort of banty, but the last is a mystery chick. We have never seen anything like it, and the chick expert at the feed store didn't know either.
    It is yellow with buff wings, and a buff head with a yellow stripe down the middle. It is round, and heavier than the rest of the chicks. It is by far the quietest and the most docile.

    I will post a picture when I get one but I thought maybe it would be fun to guess by the description.
    We have a guess- white laced red Cornish .
    I hope it is not a game chicken. :( its my favorite one so far.

    Why would you hope its not a game? Gamebirds are some of the most people friendly chickens I've ever met! I have no idea what it could be from the description you gave, but I'd love to see a picture :)

    If it's heavier and more docile, it's not a game. Sounds maybe like a sex-link?

    Oh and to answer you question howfunkyisurchicken, I don't want it to be a game hen because, not to be ruthless but in all honesty, will probably eat the ones that are not good layers.

    For some reason I was able to make its picture my profile picture... so yes, that is the chicken.

    Looks like maybe a sex link girl. Eating a game bird would be a waste, but from your description you have a dual-purpose bird.

    Blazejester, I thought Cornish hens were bred for eating? I am not trying to offend, I am still learning. Cornish hens are game hens aren't they? I think maybe I am getting all mixed up...
    Truth be told, even though the plan is to eat any Roos or meat birds, I doubt I will be able to do it because I am raising them all.
    I am thinking sex link now too any I am very glad for that!
