Mystery Horstman Chick

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I ordered a dozen barred rock bantams from Dick Horstman this spring - shipment had an extra chick.  Chicks are about 4 weeks old.

 

Dark legs - starting to develop a crest of some sort.  Anyone have any ideas on breed/gender?  2nd from left in first couple of photos, middle in the 3rd.

 

Also, since they're in the photo - I'm seeing 2 pullets and a cockerel from the barred rocks n the 1st 2 photos and a pullet/cockerel in the 2nd?

I'd say its a Polish cross of some kind. Horstman's also raise polish. So they could have thrown in a cross bred to get rid of it or thrown it in by accident.
