    got this one on monday, and we aren't quite sure what she is. I have an idea, but I figured I'd leave it up to the experts to decide, lol.

    Quote:Thats what I was thinking, but I came across a few different breeds that look similar as chicks, and so I got confused, lol.

    My brother loves this one because she looks like a little penguin. Thats actually why I picked her at the feed store. I told my brother that she's going to grow out of this coloring. He doesn't want to believe me.

    Her legs have been getting darker... She had a little black on the sides of her legs a few days ago, and now there's more black...

    I think it's a Black Australorp. Mine have black legs and they looked similar to yours as chicks. Does yours have a single comb?

    BTW - she's a very cute chick!! [​IMG]

    I don't even know what a single comb is... I don't know much about chickens, obviously..

    a single comb is a straight comb with bumps on the top.

    Then, most likely, she's a Black Australorp. [​IMG]
