    This chick is from my Buff Orpington rooster. I thought his mother was a Black Australorp because he hatched out of a brown egg but now I'm thinking there's no way that a BO and a BA could make this. I also have a Barred Rock but the chicks got black feet. The only other option is that it's from one of my Ameraucana hens that possibly lays a brown egg. What do yall think?

    I think it's a roo too. I just thought it wouldn't be Barred Rock because of the black legs?

    Is it common for a Ameraucana to lay a brown egg? Really that's what I think he looks like Buff Orpington and Ameraucana.


    Here's a closer pic...

    And the egg he came out of...

    What a cute chick.

    I think he is a roo.

    Not sure about the breed, I agree with the part barred rock. it seems to be a real mix.
