    I had 1 "chipmunk patterned" day old chick not make it in shipping. Question; at 2-weeks old, can you tell me if it's a WELSUMMER or a SPECKLED SUSSEX?:/[​IMG]

    My speckled Sussexes that I just bought look just like that, so I would say a Sussex.

    Thank you! If anyone has pictures of 2 and 3 week old Speckled Sussex Chicks; I'd live to see them I thought it was a Speckled Sussex! It must have been the poor Welsummer that passed away in shipping.
