    A leghorn cross maybe? That's the best guess I have based on the breeds you have listed in your sig.

    I don't know what sexes your brown Leghorn and Hamburg are but when I first saw the head of the chick, I thought it looked like the markings you would see on a gold laced Wyandotte. If you Hamburg is a gold laced, then I would suspect it is somewhere in the mix. The body markings look like what you'd see with Rhode Island reds or Leghorns. Right now, the chick looks like it has a single comb but if there is Hamburg in there then you might see the comb develop some oddities.

    Quote:the brown leghorn is a roo and the golden laced hamburg is a hen. the chick has a single comb.
