    We purchased Gryffindor (chick pictured below) from Coastal Farm Supply. She was in the "assorted white egg layers" bin. Does anyone care to guess what breed she is? Her wing and tail feathers seem to be coming in mostly white, with a few black wingfeathers mixed in.

    Might be an Ancona. It can be hard to tell at this age

    That's our best guess as well. If so, I hope she is unusually calm for her breed.

    I'm also thinking Ancona.

    I would say Ancona as well. I included a picture of mine Ancona hen when she was just a little bit older than yours. [​IMG]

    I sent a picture to Murray McMurray hatchery, and they said it would be an Ancona. So now, the gentling process begins in earnest.

    Pretty babies, for sure. I just hope she is unusually calm for her breed.
