    My first batch of babies from the hatchery was mostly dead... I got a mixed bunch of EE's, brown eggers and white eggers...

    This is the ONLY baby who has yellow legs, a single comb and has a little "sticky-uppy" tail like that...

    Any idea what breed? And, if it's not too early (almost 4 weeks), what sex?

    THANKS!!! [​IMG]

    Brown Leghorn or Welsumer. My brown leghorn girls looked exactly like that when they were little.

    Hmmm. It looks alot like a Welsummer, except Leghorns have white earlobes and Welsummers don't. KellyGwen, can you tell what color the earlobes are yet? Also, what hatchery did you get her from? I don't think McMurray sells Welsummers.
