    This is my free "mystery" chick from McMurray Hatchery. In this photo he/she is 2 weeks old.
    Any guesses on the breed? Gender?

    Thats a Silver-Spangled Hamburg. The Hamburg is a nice hardy breed of chicken, and I'm sure you'll like him (yes, I think that it is a he, as he seems to have a slightly red comb, and most "free" chicks are roosters).

    From the.moment we received him, i described him as "small in stature, big in personality" and that exactly how everything I'm reading describes them too. Thank you!!
