    We got our flock of bantam chicks, but this little girl was not one we ordered. Plucky, inquisitive little girl and I like her, just curious if anyone can name her breed. mystery 4.jpg mystery 3.jpg mystery 2.jpg mystery 1.jpg

    I think it's a buff sebright Cockerel. Which Hatchery are they from?

    Thanks! We actually DID order a buff Seabright, but thought that was the one chick we lost, so that would make sense. We got them from Meyers Hatchery.

    Lacing should get better as it gets older. Sebright cockerels are always feisty, IME, lol.

    Are you fairly certain it is a cockerel then?

    Well, maybe not. The comb and wattles are pretty big, but given the amount of feathering they may be on track for a pullet. How old is it?
