    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. 20180306_180258.jpg 20180330_185406.jpg 20180330_185448.jpg 20180330_185402.jpg 20180330_184357.jpg
