Hi! My McMurray surprise chick I’ve deduced is a Salmon Faverolle. 5 toes, feathered feet. Now to figure out sex. Black feathers on feet, chest and wings. Comb is much bigger than any of the others.
If it is a roo-how is their demeanor? I will have 21 in my flock ages 3 and younger. I MAY have another surprise roo (light Brahma) in my May order-but that’s another post for another day.

Thank you. I knew there was a risk in the surprise chick option. How is the demeanor of yours? Or did you have to re-home him?
We bought all boys from Murray McM that order. He was the most chill of all of them. I believe he would have turned out to be a good boy. We did not keep him though, as we kept another for flock leader. We bought in 2020, so females were in short supply everywhere. We figured buying a variety of males gave us choices for lead rooster, and as possibilities for kid to show at fair.
