My "Free Exotic Chick" From McMurray Hatchery

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

 

 

 

This girl is about 5 months old now! And usually I can tell what they're going to be but... what is this?? She was shipped from McMurray Hatchery as the free exotic chick in a shipment of banties, and with her size she is definitely a banty. She is clean legged and when she first arrived I thought she was gonna end up being a black Japanese banty. She does have ticking around her neck, as you can see in the photo. It's almost a gold color but... definitely not as gold as my golden laced cochins. She's standing next to my full sized BLR Wyandotte hen so you can see her size. She hangs around my Sumatras and fits right in :)

Owned by 4 horses (Appaloosas, AQH, & Friesian X), 17 chickens (Sumatras, Blue Laced Red Wyandottes, Welsummers, Easter Eggers, Porcelains, Mille Fleurs, & Smooth and Frizzle Bantam Cochins) 3 goats (Nigerian Dwarfs), 2 geese (African and Chinese White), and 3 cats.

What kind of comb? Rose comb?

1 splash silkie rooster, 1 splash silkie hen, 1 blue silkie hen, 2 EE hens, RIR, buff orpington, blue orpington, barred rock, SLW, a few silkie/EE mixes

Btw, the names Andrew, if my username doesn't make sense...

I almost wanna say she has a pea comb because it is so tiny and close to her head - like my Sumatras.

Well then she might just be a hatchery quality Sumatra bantam. I'm not really seeing any breed here in particular, so its possible she could just be a mix

Well, whatever she is, my Sumatra rooster loves her. His Sumatra hens both have chicks right now and hate him, and she is the only one he hangs out with now. :P
