    ok so i bought 4 new baby chicks from atwoods we have successfully raised 3 RIR and we are growing new additions for the bigger coop we are building. I bought 2 black australorps 1 golden sexlink and 1 .....unknown....they had it in the brooder with the black australorps and obviously this is NOT what she is .....shes very cute, kind of small and very spunky and FAST ...man shes fast. her legs are kind of a grey color i have narrowed it down to what i suspect to be ameraucana, wellsummer, or speckled sussex ..... i am un sure..... anyone else have a guess? shes the tiny one in the front.

    P.s. we had to take one of the chicks back because it was a rooster so the one black australorp that is missing was the replacement for the male.

    It kind of looks like a speckled sussex. They look so much alike when they are babies. I think you gotta wait till they feather out...

    I would guess brown leghorn, im not very adept with guessing breeds, but when you say she is very FAST it reminds me of my chicks Shelley, Stephanie and Sharmaine when they were babies and they looked alot like your lil chick :)

    her legs are quite grey thats the only thing that leans me away from the leghorn...but i cud be completely wrong....just most of the brown leghorns look to have very pinkish or yellow legs.....i guess waiting will be the only true answer :( booooo[​IMG]

    Sussex have white legs, don't they? I'm leaning toward Welsummer.
