    [​IMG] Hi, I just got some baby chicks. I got 1 chick from assortment and can't find out what she is. It is a she because I ordered a girl. She is yellow with little face muffs, and she has black/brown wing feathers with white trim coming in. Here are the breeds in the assortment
    easter egger
    white wyandotte
    white russian orloff
    spangled russian orloff
    antwerp belgian
    sebrights
    white crested black polish
    welsummer
    barred rocks
    Btw she is a bantam. Thanks so much! btw her name is betty:) I'm positive she's a bantam. I ordered her from the bantam assortment.

    EEs have muffs and can be bantams also. It could be the Antwerp Belgian, but it doesn't have slate legs like the pictures I have seen of them. [​IMG] Of course it doesn't have the normal green legs of an EE either, so I guess the best thing to do would be to wait until it feathers out more.

    ETA: I just looked up some of the other breeds on that list and noticed that the Orloffs have beards/muffs also, so it could be one of those.

    russian orloffs banties are super rare i think. Could be a bantam EE, I was assuming that all breeds were LF if not true bantams. I'd like to see it all grown up. Where did it come from?

    oops Meyer Hatchery sells bantie orloffs but they say there are fewer than 500 breeding pairs in the US

    She came from mypetchicken.com. I got her this last monday, she came from a hatchery in ohio. Mypetchicken.com is a really good place to get chicks. They all arrived safe and sound:)

    Yes, I would agree with Illia -- probably white orloff. Marvelous picture by the way [​IMG]

    Oops didn't see your post. I don't really know so you're probably right.
