I am finally back with a new batch of chickens, and chicks! There's 1 chick that I need help on trying to figure out which breed it is. Figured you guys would be able to help me as well since some of you also have chickens!
Here's a little back story:
My husband, and I often go to a large Amish Community where we buy a lot of food in bulk for a great price. After not having chickens for so long I decided hey I have an incubator, the eggs here are collected fresh then sold. Why not give it a try, right?! So I snatched up a dozen eggs marked as "Jumbo Brown Eggs." Let me tell you, they were indeed some Jumbo eggs, haha. The tips would barely fit into my Auto-Tuner. After waiting for about a week only 1 out of the 12 showed any signs of formation. I waited a few more days, and pitched the other eggs. (No formation at all.) I worked my butt off to keep the last little egg going, and finally last night she hatched!!! <3 <3 <3
She looks so different from any other chick I've ever had. Her down looks to me longer, and almost "fluffy," she light yellow with brown on her head, and side of her neck. Along with the brown on her neck it is longer, and like a wisp of down, almost like a little hair do, haha.
I am attaching several photos from different angles so you can get a better view of her.
