    On 6-10-11 I posted pics of my mystery chick. Here's the comparison pics then and now, no more chipmunk markings. Any ideas of what breed or sex it might be? Please be a pullet [​IMG]
    Edited to add age (best guess) : 6 weeks- ish

    I would say brown leghorn pullet. If it was welsummer going by baby pic it would be a boy but by 6 weeks would have a bigger comb and wattles. Looks like my 6 week old brown leghorns

    I was thinking brown leghorn too, but do they get this much of a color gradation? The colors seem a bit Welsummer to me....but then I've never even owned a chicken before [​IMG]
