    Bought 6 what was supposed to be Red Rangers. Got them home and color started coming in and this one is the odd girl out. Anyone know what she may be? [​IMG]

    I would like to see a better picture of the chicks head. Those are some very large legs!

    Given the large size for a chick that's only about a week old or two old, I'm guessing Cornish X. Probably a cockerel, too, with those pink wattles and big comb.

    I wanted to say the same but the feet are slate, which I've never seen on a CX. Bresse come to mind given they are a slate-legged, white feathered meat fowl, but they shouldn't grow this fast nor should any hatchery have such a rare bird on hand.

    Still not sure about the breed, but that red comb is all boy. Pullets don't even start to pink up in the comb until they are getting close to laying eggs, usually sometime after 14 weeks old.
