    We just picked up a new chick from the feed store. It came in an assorted bantam order, so the people don't know what breed it is. It is a bantam and it's as small as the Japanese chick we have. I know a lot of chicks look the same, but which breeds do you think it could be? I'm thinking Easter Egger

    If there's any other angle of picture you need, just let me know. Thanks! :)

    I'm not sure what it is, but I dont think she's an EE. She doesnt have a beard or the green legs. My best bet would be some color of Old English Bantam. :)

    Or a Silver Seabright. What type of comb does she have?

    Looks like a single comb.
    Here's a picture of an Easter Egger chick, it doesn't appear to have green legs or a beard. [​IMG]

    It does have a beard. And EEs are mixed by nature and can come with or without green legs. It's not a standardized breed, but rather a feedstore slurry.

    Right, I know that because we had a standard Easter Egger from the feed store too. And you are right again, because I'm now seeing the beard too. [​IMG]
    So no to the EE theory. Any other suggestions?
