    Pepper is about 6-7 weeks old. She's a little bigger than the rest of my mixed flock at this point and the only girl we can't really identify! I have pictures of when she was a few days old if that helps, but she was black and yellow mixed. Help, I'm dying to know what she is! 20170529_092706.jpg 20170529_092712.jpg 20170529_092725.jpg

    I think you could be right, thanks! Can't wait to do all of my research later about these breeds!

    I got her in a 'mixed rare breeds' bunch from MyPetChicken.com I've been able to identify all the rest (I think...) except for this girl. Her very yellow feet and white chest are throwing us off any sort of grey/blue breeds that we knew of.

    When you say mixed do you mean the chicks are a different assortment of rare breeds or do you mean that your ordered mixed (not pure) rare breeds? If it is the first option then I doubt it is an Andalusian mix.

    Good point - I meant they were an assortment of breeds. To my knowledge they aren't "not pure", however I am sure I can't have a guarantee of that.

    Could I see pictures of her as a chick? I really want to figure out what she is, she's gorgeous!
