    Does anyone know what breed this chick is? I got her sexed as a pullet today and the bin was labeled Colombian Wyandotte. She can't possibly be a Colombian because she has feathered feet. She is a hatchery bird. Any help would be greatly appreciated.[​IMG]

    I replied to your other post. Believe me, hatchery breeds can be way off" feathered legs" on breeds that shouldn't have them, wrong comb types etc.
    Hard to tell with hatchery stock if they are low quality BUT purebred, or crosses that they market as pure bred.[​IMG]

    The chick is darling, I hope it does stay a pullet - at this age(?????) it appears to be a girl.

    Thank You, whatever it is she is a keeper. I
    think she is about 1 week old.

    Feathered legs does rule out Wyandotte (colombian is a color, not a breed). I can't tell if it has a pea or straight comb. Could be a dark Brahma?
