    I know it may be a little early to tell, but what breed is this? He/she is supposedly 1 week-ish old.

    S/he looks just like my Easter Egger chicks. I know that chipmunk coloring is common in a few different chicks, but my EE's have similar wing feathering as well.
    Here is one of my girls at almost 2 weeks-ish.

    The first picture you posted looks just like my Welsummer chick that hatched yesterday. I'm no expert, I'm just saying that to me it looks a lot like a Welsummer.

    Quote:Agreed. If it is an Easter Egger, it should have puffy cheeks and lightly tinted green legs. I can't tell from your pictures, they look green in one and yellow in the other. [​IMG]
    It is cute! [​IMG]

    I have one of these too. I pulled it from the Asst Bantam bin. I have no idea what mine is but I've posted him/her a few times to get opinions.

    I think the OP's chick might be a Leghorn or Welsummer. Easter Eggers usually have way fluffier cheeks.

    Its young still, difficult to tell, I think a few weeks and the BYC experts will nail it down for you easily.

    Thanks y'all! The legs are orangey yellow- no hints of green. I will post some updated pics in a week or two. They are growing up so fast!
