    What is this?

    He is all black with white on chest and beard.. He was a freebie with my McMurray order, but it would be nice if they told me what it was.

    Looks like a barred rock, or a dominique, but since he was a freebie, I'd guess BR.

    I agree, Black Australorp. Most likely a rooster if it was an extra, but I could be wrong [​IMG]

    I think it could be a Jersey Giant. More likely to be your free rare and exotic...

    And my McMurray extra this summer was a pullet...

    Most likely a mix, but we need more full body shots. You should also start your own thread for this too.
