    I recently bought some chicks as "assorted breeds" from a local feed store, and have one type of chick that I have not been able to identify. Thanks for looking.

    What kind of comb does it have? It could be a silver pencilled cochin.

    The main reason I say female is the color, pencilled varieties come in different colors when they feather in. If it was a male it would have a mostly black breast with no pencilling showing.

    I have 3 more that are similar in color, but all smaller. The one pictures here has more white, and the comb is redder. Not sure if they're the same breed or not...
