    This little cutiepie popped out of an egg today and I'm curious if it's possible to peg down who the parents are? I have multiple possible daddies, but only a couple hen possibilities.

    Possible moms: Production Red or White Jersey Giant.

    Possible dads: White Jersey Giant, Wheaten Easter Egger Bantam, Rhode Island Red Bantam, White Silkie Bantam, Blue Cochin Bantam, or Wheaten Cubalaya Bantam. (Yes, I know...I'm working on cutting bacj on my roos, ha ha)

    The chick's legs are yellow and there are no extra toes, so I'm guessing that would cross off the Silkie and probably the Jersey Giant and Easter Egger too(since both have tintee legs)? And no feathered feet, so there goes the cochin too.

    What a cute chick!!! I'm thinking he's a Austra White, which is an Austrolorp cross white leghorn. Their chicks are white with black spots. That's pretty much the only breed with black spots like your chick.

    Where did you get him? That may help us figure out what he is.

    The chick was hatched here, to my chickens. I listed the possible parents in my first post. Definitely no Austrolorp or Leghorn.

    I picked up a chick like this today at PetZoo. They get the Layer mix from Murray McMurray every year. If not a mix breed, what else could it be?
