    He's my bad boy, I have been told California white/grey to Delaware, but I couldn't tell you, he has 2 hens, that are nothing like him, their legs are yellow,beaks 2 and just lightly speckled on their backs. I am kind of thinking an Americana, but he has no beard. He is 8 weeks old and very friendly, just likes to start fights with every chicken in the flock male or female. I don't want to get rid of him, he's grown on me, just would like to know what he is.



    Please excuse the dirty water, I clean it twice a day, my chickens stand in it all day, usually after they dust.

    Easter Eggers usually have green legs. If that is a single comb, your bird looks like a White Sussex to me.

    I would guess Delaware...maybe a cross, or just bad stock.

    Hatchery chick [​IMG] ???? The woman I got him from had gotten 150 hatching eggs from a hatchery and had no idea what most of them were at hatching time. She told me California White, but I'm just not seeing it, I went in with my learning on the difference of a roo and hen as a chick and did well, got a roo for 2-3 matching breed hens....or so I thought, the girls have yellow legs and beak, his are white and a black beak [​IMG] And I have looked and looked for a match on his breed and I am just going in circles and wanting to add to my flock from all the beautiful breeds I have run across. Thank you for ya'll's input. Gives me more circles to run [​IMG]

    I have two like that, and I know for a fact they are mutts. lol Mine are crosses between a Plymouth White Rocks and Wyandottes as best we can figure from what the flock they came from had in it. One of mine has a rose comb, and the other has a single.

    ETA: Mine both have yellow legs.
