    Hello, I'm new to the boards here & have a question about one of my chicks. This is my 6 week old, Frida (she was about 4 1/2 weeks in the pics). Is she an EE or a Golden Campine? The guy at the feed store said it was an Araucana, after reading that they are a pretty rare find, I'm thinking it may be a Golden Campine/EE mix maybe? Not sure, any ideas? Thanks [​IMG]

    edit add:
    Guess I should read more...
    I have no idea what it's mixed with and will leave that answer to others...
    But either way, it would be called an EE.

    If and when it lays eggs that are green, it would be an EE like barg says.

    I say EE too -the barring is pretty common among EE's (especially at that age), and the legs look too dark and short to be Campine. Plus Campines have single combs and EEs have pea combs, which this chick does.
    But that's just me! [​IMG] Very pretty though!

    Quote:Well, If I have my information correct, if it is a Campine it should lay white eggs and since it has a pea comb it can't lay white eggs.
    I wouldn't place any bets on what color eggs you'll get other then white, I'de bet against white eggs.
    Anyone with contradictory information, I don't mine being proven wrong [​IMG]

    Added: Ok, I just found a breed with a pea comb that lays white eggs, I'll have to look into that some more. [​IMG]
    More Added: I just found a site that contradicts the other site which means were back to square one, Pea comb = tinted eggs.
    Ok, i'm done [​IMG]

    What type of comb? Looks like it could be a buttercup.

    That most certainly looks like a pea comb and an EE. I would also say it's a boy.

    I was wondering if anyone knows what type of chicks these are. They were the last 2 out of 500 at the feed store and they guy wasn't sure what kind they were. I thought they were the same but one is all light yellow with yellow/orange legs and the other one is larger and has black markings on the wings. We don't really care but it is bothering me:) Sorry I wan't talented enough to directly add the pics!
