    I had a chick hatch yesterday and am wondering what she could be (I'm pretty sure she's a "she," from both vent sexing and wing feather sexing - so that's WONDERFUL news!). Anyway, here are her specs:

    - Black with red stripes on face over and below eyes
    - Belly is cream/reddish
    - Legs are slate with light feathering
    - 5 toes on each foot

    I know she's a "mutt" - the eggs came from the farm where my horses are boarded and they have all types of hens and roos running around - but what does she MOST sound like?

    Sorry I don't have any pics. We're in the process of moving and I have no idea where the rechargeable batteries are for my camera [​IMG]

    Someone? Anyone? I don't want her to go through life thinking she's "just a mutt!" [​IMG]

    Five toes is the most telling thing about that list. What color is her skin? Could be Silkie cross or Dorking or Sultan, but the feathered legs seem to knock out the Dorking. It's hard to say without a picture, though.
