    I just recently went and bought more chicks. In the bin, there were Buff Orpingtons, Rhode Island Reds and Black Copper Marans. As the chick below is clearly not a Maran, the coloring is neither yellow or red. It is closer to the yellow of an Orpington, but it has a faint black line down the back of its head. Help please?

    Deleware, basque, or a mixed.

    Thanks, I was leaning more towards the mixed side, too.

    Wait until it is fully feathered. Makes all the difference in the world for identification. You can also tell right around then whether it is male of female.
