    Hi all,

    I was wondering if anyone recognized this breed. She came as an extra when I ordered 24 chicks from Murray McMurray. And she wasn't the free 25th exotic they throw in. She was number 26! I am wondering if she might actually be a rooster they were trying to unload. She's very aggressive and has grown big faster than the other layers I got in that order.

    Thanks for any thoughts!

    Yes, it is a rooster. Most extras are. What kind? I don't know.

    The rose comb suggests a Wyandotte or Dominique, but the leg color is off.

    Perhaps a game fowl? I dunno.... [​IMG]

    Probably a silver spangled hamburg.
