    What breed does this chick look like? Hen is an olmec and the rooster is 3/4 white Brahma and 1/4 something that lays bright blue eggs. I can't seem to find any breed that has her mask or what she may look like when she is older. I know she's a mutt but I am very curious.

    What is an Olmec?

    You answered you own question, the chick is a mixed breed. Chick down is often quite different than adult plumage, for example this chick won't have a mask when it's grown. That's just baby coloring. Knowing what the hen is could help us give you a better idea what the baby may look like when mature.
