    I am beginning to wonder. Any ideas what breed this is? It came from a brown egg and I was told Dominiker [​IMG]

    Definately not a dominique. I know these pics aren't great, but these are what dominique chicks look like.

    Yeah I know Lilpeeps. I just hatched out 17 barred rocks and 5 dominiques so far, got 2 more to go. Now you see why I am confused, he/she is the only yellow one in the whole bunch!!

    You'll have to ask who you got the eggs from what it could be...but it looks quite similar to the 2 chicks I have had out of an araucana mixed hen x a barred rock mixed roo (those are their primary breeds). So, quite possibly, it is primarily Dom or BR, but some other roo got to that hen...just my 2 cents.

    Well I went this morning to the man who I got the eggs from, to see what rooster's he has.

    In one pen he has Dominiker hens and roo's. There is also what I believe to be a Delaware hen in there with them.
    Someone suggested Light Brahama, but the chick I hatched doesn't have feathers on his legs.

    There is a pen with the Polish Hen and rooster's in it. That would be my pure breed chicks.

    There is a pen with some OEG bantams in it.( got free eggs today... [​IMG])

    Then there is a loner Roo that does his on thing [​IMG]

    With all that being said I think that my little yellow chick is a Dominiker X Delaware, sound right to ya'll?

    I am not complaining at all cause he gave me these eggs!!

    Cute chicks either way!
