    This chick is 9weeks old we bought 25 chicks from McMurray we got the following.

    10 aruacanas - hen
    10 NH reds - hen
    5 Barred rocks - Hen
    1 Exotic straight run ( although we haven't seen or found a single roo so we think its a hen.)
    = 26 birds ( they sent us an extra red... but it died.[​IMG])

    we are thinking this bird is the exotic cause none an i mean none of the other birds look like this one.

    so could you help me out?[​IMG]

    very pretty, I mean handsome [​IMG] , EE (easter egger) rooster.
    Your "Aruacauna" hens are also EE's. Hatchery's don't have purebred aruacaunas or ameraucanas. They are still pretty either way, breeders of purebreds aren't happy when EE's are called purebreds. (letting you know before someone calls you out on it).
