This girl (hopefully girl!) Has me stumped. Aprox 6 wks old Suppose to be sorted female Was in "rare breed mix" 80% sure from Hoover's (girl at the store couldn't confirm as they do have several suppliers but gave me a wink when I asked about this particular group of chicks). Was the only chick in the bin that looked like this. Always been slightly smaller and "gamey-er" than the other chicks of the same age. Hoping not a roo... As a few day old baby was black with dark red tinge on head. Adult feathers coming in with some gorgeous orange/red hues. Some possible ideas: listed as possible rare breed mix chicks from Hoovers website= copper maran, barnevelder. Not listed as rare breed on Hoover's= golden laced wyandotte. The chick color is not right for any of these (he didn't have any white on him as a baby) and the leg color is wrong for the barnevelder (he has a greenish leg, website shos barnevelder with light legs). Pics attached. Excuse her fat crop she's a hog. Baby chick picture also attached.
