    Could be a BR or possibly and EE, the legs look a little greenish to me.

    Thanks for the suggestions. The legs are greenish. New to the chicken business, and I have 50 chicks to figure out. Meyers Hatchery Brown layers straight run and Rainbow Pack of Pullets. I know the Polish ones, that's it. [​IMG]

    Barred Rocks are black with white spots on their heads. That's definitely not a barred rock! I would guess silver laced wyandotte or EE.

    I was looking at pix at the site in the Breed area, and I was wondering, could he/she be a "sicilian buttercup" or a "siver Campine"?
    What do you folks think?

    What kind of comb does it have? From the pic, it looks like it might have a single comb but I'm not sure. A straight serrated line is a single comb. A smallish kind of triangular like fleshy patch (may have some bumps on it or be developing into "rows") could be a pea comb or rose comb. Two straight serrated lines that curve to meet one another towards the back of the head with an opening in front would be a buttercup comb (may just look like two serrated lines at this point).
