    Hi everyone, my first post! I am pretty sure he is a roo, as much as you can be at just over 6 weeks. He is my free exotic chick from McMurray and I am curious what breed he is. I am thinking maybe an Araucanas/Ameraucana, as he very closely resembled the three of those that I ordered when they were chicks. He now looks a lot different from them, they are much redder toned as well as a good bit larger than him so I am curious![​IMG]

    He could be a silver leghorn as a rooster would be coloured like that.

    I'm wondering if he could be a bantam of some sort. Can you post a picture of him compared to the other chicks you got?
