I got this at the feed store labeled as an unsexed rare breed and thought I had it figured out but now that it is almost 5 weeks I really don't know anymore. Can you tell me breed or gender?

wish i could help you with identifying this one, but just wanted to say it's already pretty, and is going to be one beautiful adult bird. Best of luck with it!

I agree it is beautiful. I can't find anything with similar coloring. The feed store got it from Ideal. I have been searching all over their site and can't seem to fit it in anywhere...

Only thing I can think of from Ideal would be a white laced red cornish. I know when I ordered a few standard cornish from them, they hardly resembled a cornish at all, type was way off.

Top left is Kraienkoppe.

Can't see the chick's comb too clearly.. can tell it doesn't have a single comb(therefore ruling out any single combed breed or sex links).. can't make out if it has a rose or flat area or..??

My first guess was an EE.. but could be one of the Orientals, such as Malay, Saipan.. don't know what Cubalaya chicks looks like, they show a wheaten hen on their Cubalaya page(this chick looks either wheaten or wheaten mixed). Kraienkoppe is a possibility also.

In any case, pretty sure it's a pullet.
