    He/she is about one week old, from a farm with many breeds mixed in together.

    I'd Assume it's a "barnyard special" until a later date

    Hmm, I can't tell if the legs are greenish or darkish. If they are greenish you've probably got an EE mix. If they are dark, it's possibly a white rock mix (saw just a touch of black on it). Can you tell if it has a single comb? I think a leghorn would have yellow legs.

    It's hard to say about gender at this age. It appears to have pretty good wing feather development for 1 week old, which would mean pullet, but since we don't really know the breed - [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Looks like a healthy chick!

    The photos accurately show the leg color, it's almost yellow, with a greenish/blueish tinge. She/he has little black/grey specks in every white feather.
     
  5. Yes, I think an EE mix [​IMG]

    How about speckled sussex/delaware mix?

    As an aside this other mystery chick is now developing gorgeous speckled black and brown feathers, but I discovered today it has five toes like a silkie. No other signs, just the toes. This is an old photo from day one, have to upload more..
