Anyone want to guess what my "free rare chick" from McMurray is?

    Below are pictures of what I think is the free rare chick McMurray sent. I got an order of 25 straight run heavy breeds, and this one is the only one of its kind in the bunch. It's also smaller than the other chicks.

    Any ideas? [​IMG]

    Edit to add: it's about 3.5 weeks old, if that helps.

    Is that a pea comb?

    That is a single comb. Since it was an assortment you will never know what the free rare one was. Cute Chick [​IMG]

    Here's what I do - take the MM list and figure out what birds they sell. Then go from there.

    Even with assortments you can sometimes narrow down to which the freebie is.

    Wow, not a clue! Keep posting pics as it grows up. It looks like it's going to be really striking, whatever it is.

    Do you have a picture of it as a chick? [​IMG] That might help, too.

    (I'm leaning towards Ameraucana/EE)
