    I am posting this picture for help with breed. Sorry for only one picture, but it seems to be the only one which will upload.

    This apparently was my mystery chick as it is not one of the recognizable breeds which I ordered from Welp.

    As a chick it resembled the brown leghorns and the welsummers with the chipmunk stripes. As it matured it developed the white ears like the brown leghorn but the comb is not right yet it is lighter weight than the Welsummers and has a light coloring in the breast feathers. The egg is an off white, lite cream color (does not show well in the picture).

    Any eagle eye readers with comments, please?

    Look up Golden Phoenix. Its hard to tell because of the photo, but the tail strikes me as longer than average, they do have chipmunk chicks, white earlobes, lay a white to tinted egg and are light weight and Welp carries them.
