    This is the only chick I have that I can't identify. I got her 8 weeks ago, and she came from the Rhode Island Red bin at my local feed store's chick day. She doesn't look like the 2 other RIR's that I have...

    This was her as a couple weeks old:

    I though she was an EE, but no green legs or chipmunk cheeks.

    Are you sure that chick picture matches the adult? My first instinct would be New Hampshire Red, but the chick is all wrong for the breed.

    Maybe a Red Leghorn cross? [​IMG]

    That is definately the chick picture. I only had 11 chicks, and I know who is who. When I first posted the baby pics, people said it looked like a speckled sussex, but I don't see any speckles...

    I think she is a New Hampshire.
