    I received this beautiful girl in an assortment, and don't know what she is. Can anyone out there help with this? She is about 9 weeks old, and looked like a barred rock when she was a day old (black with a white spot on her head). Her hackle feathers look laced if that helps. Fingers crossed someone knows what she is!

    We need a picture so that we can help with guessing her breed.

    The one in question is the black and white one. Considering the fact that the order was for "Rainbow Layers Assortment", I hope it isn't a cockeral! I am aware that mistakes happen, but this was a fairly small order.

    I agree, ee cockerel. Did you get a rare/exotic chick? That's what they frequently are. And breed aside, that much comb at that age is boy, no matter the breed.

    Crimeny, that's what it is! Dog gone it. Thanks so much for your help everyone! I hope the name "Pauline" doesn't give him a complex...

    Yep, I agree with the others. Generally, white-ish EEs or Ameraucanas will have males with dark around the neck and at the base of tail, where the female coloring of that variety is more dark throughout the body.

    Guess I already had it stuck in my head that it was a pullet, since that is what I ordered. While taking the picture, I thought it was funny how similar the pattern was to the EE's she (he) was standing next to. Guess I should have put it together
