Mystery Chicken

We purchased a mystery chick in one batch of chicks. The sales clerk said they thought she was a Australorp or a commercial black. She was mostly black with a gold spot on the top of her head and a gold chest. She is the one on the left of the picture below.

As she has grown, she has gotten white speckles throughout her back and wings and the golden spot on her head has gotten smaller though it is still there. She also has grown faster and bigger than most of the other birds. She is getting to be quite a gangly teenager looking a bit like a vulture. On the other hand, she does seem to be a very sweet chicken who is very alert and always watching. She is always the one who catches me watching them and enjoys watching me in return. She is the one at the bottom of the picture below.

Update: Below is a picture of Lola the mystery chicken. I hope these pictures are a little more clear now that she’s a little older. Anyone want to guess what she is??
