    Any guesses on this one? It's not a Golden Laced Wyandotte, we have some of those. Thanks!

    It was the mystery chick from McMurray, so not one that we hatched.

    I'm guessing either leghorn or dutch bantam

    Leghorn:

    Dutch bantam:

    WARNING:

    When it gets a little older, you will have to clip its wings because both breeds are very flighty and are known to roost in trees. I have a dutch bantam and she flew over my 8 foot tall coop.


    Good luck!

    what a cute little thing!

    Not sure of the breed, but I do believe it's something black breasted red, and a pullet.

    The only bird that Murray McMurray sells that seems to fit its appearance (leg color, feather color and pattern, etc.) is a Black Breasted Red Game pullet.

    I had one that looked like that. When it was a chick it was all black with a light reddish head. feathered out the same and ended up being what looked like a black sex link.
