    9 weeks. Larger than my other chicks, but they are all different breeds. Brave. Nice to the little ones. Possibly a mix. Not what breed I was originally told.

    Pullet, looks like a crossbred to me.

    I'm wondering if she could be part partridge brahma because she has a brown/gold head and grey tail/body and they did have them on the farm. She is easily twice the size of my other chicks and they all supposedly had the same hatch date. She also has tiny little feathers on her legs.

    You can see how big she is compared to my Australorp and Wyandotte.

    Defintiely not Brahma, since they have feathered feet and pea combs. Maybe a Partridge Plymouth Rock mix.

    She doesn't have clean legs, but they aren't fully feathered either :/

    They have some feathers? Then it is more likely to be a very mixed mix :) or part Cochin. A big problem with mixes when you don't do it yourself is that it can be very hard to find out their ancestry.

    She could be from a Legbar/Marans Olive Egger project. And she's bigger because she's about 2 weeks older than the other chicks.

    She's sweet and a girl, so she gets to stay. She is one of my first chickens and since she wasn't what I'd thought she was I figured some more experienced chicken owners might have some good guesses. She was supposed to be pure Bielefelder. My big hopes are that she's a good layer and cold hardy. Hopefully whatever farm project she was part of was one for production and not just color!
