    Hello,
    I have this little chick that was given to me and as (s)he gets bigger I start to wondering more and more what mix (s)he is. I know (s)he is young but any idea on the gender? I was told (s)he is about a month old.
    Thanks

    When we first go him/her

    She has this line on her belly where there are no feathers, like our Cornish girl we have. So I was not sure is maybe (s)he has some cornish in her [​IMG] Just wondering [​IMG]

    The feathering colors make me think Easter Egger or some sort of mix similar to that, but that's a complete guess. BTW, several of my chickens had that bare belly patch as babies. I always wondered what it was from, too.

    Looks like a girl to me, maybe just some sort of mix?

    Thanks everyone,
    I am hoping for a girl [​IMG] The house she came from there where 2 Black Sexlink hens, 2 Black cochin, /EE mixes, 1 bantam welsummer, 2 cuckoo marans mixes, and something else but I can't remember, LOL I have no clue on what the rooster was that they had tho [​IMG]

    Thanks!

    Her leg and feather coloring,comb,form and the bare patch of skin on her keel bone means she is not an EE.

    She is most likely a cross between a bird like a Shamo,Malay or Asil. To me,she looks like a wheaten/bbr color.

    Quote:Just wondering, why does it mean she's not an EE? Because EE's are a "type" and not a breed, don't they have a lot of variation? Pretty much the only thing they have in common is that they may carry the gene for blue/green eggs. While most EE's have pea combs, not all do, etc.

    Quote:I had a few chicks with the same belly with no feathers. They filled out, fattened up and grew feathers. I think it's normal.

    Thanks everyone,
    I have raised some EE's and she is a lot different then the ones I have had. I can get some better pictures of her, if that would help. She is a spastic little thing, hence why I was wonder is she was a he [​IMG] She is always bossing the other chicks around [​IMG]

    Thanks Again [​IMG]
