    Got this chick from Meyer hatchery as a rare breed. Not sure what this might be. Looks like Swedish flower to me, but she didn't have a band on her leg for an identification. Two Swedish flowers that I ordered had bands, but not this one. Please advise. 20190908_130133.jpg 20190908_130133.jpg 20190908_130715.jpg 20190908_130620.jpg 20190908_130620.jpg

    If you go to the Meyer's website, with your order number, and click on the chat window they have that pops up now, they can tell you what they sent. Or you can call.

    Thank you! I tried that one some of the chicks I ordered were assortment from rare breeds. So I don't know what Meyer gave me. On my order just saying "assortments" on the ones I don't know the breed

    hi, i work for Meyer Hatchery :) The little tuff of feathers on top of the head has me thinking it could be a Lakeshore Egger, which is a hybrid and can come in various coloring. That breed is one of the options under the assorted rare.

    Oh, nice! I love Lakeshores! If you work there, you might help me with one more chick I ordered assortment of rare breeds, all females. They are 6 weeks old. But I think I got one rooster not allowed to keep more than one rooster here. Please help me to identify the breed and sex of it. IMG951872.jpg
