    This chick hatched out of a miss-marked egg. The egg said "Giant Cochin" and this is NOT a Giant Cochin. [​IMG] Here are some pics of the chick starting with a few days old up to now - about a month old. Thanks!! [​IMG]

    Here it is with some Buff Orp chicks the same age.

    Oh and please tell me this is not a boy! It grew tail feathers as fast as my Buff Orp pullet! And My Buff Orp cockerel has redder waddles and comb. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Thanks for looking! [​IMG]

    Hmm, maybe a Welsummer? I kind-of looks like my Speckled Sussex, but not close enough to say that is what it is. I am leaning more towards Welsummer. And, I am also leaning towards roo with the comb and wattles.

    I'm not familiar with either one of those breeds. Guess I should go take a look! I know I had posted this chick as a baby and someone thought maybe a RIR or something similar. But I really was not feeling that was a good fit. Hummmmm ... maybe it's a cross between Speckeled Sussex and Welsummer? [​IMG] Ha!

    I'm thinking speckled Sussex. I can't remember exactly how mine looked at that age, but one of them was very pale as a chick, not the typical "chipmunk" coloring. He is looking speckled though. Where did you get it?

    I hatched it from eggs my husband ordered. The seller has tons of breeds and can't tell us for sure what it is. Especially since the egg was marked as a Giant Cochin. [​IMG]

    Not sure what it is, but it doesn't look anything like my Welsummers, or my RIR.

    I agree, it doesn't look anything like my welsummers. It does look to be a boy though.
