    This is the same "Mystery Chick" I've posted since it was a couple weeks old. I'm still guessing Easter Egger, but geez, it looks like a true Heinz-57 to me! Also, now that the hackle and tail feathers are coming in, I'm leaning more toward cockerel. Opinions?

    wow... I'd call that a Puzzle Chicken!

    These mixed up chickens really look like someone cut up four or five chickens and jammed the different parts together.

    I haven't a clue... I'm not that good yet.

    I know I don't see RIR or BO.

    I also think it looks like a roo, EE type, green legs, pea comb, and muff/beard

    I've never seen anything like it. The EE hens I have are all "of a type," and even a similar color-scheme. This guy doesn't fit in ANYWHERE...but for some reason, I like him. [​IMG]

    I also have a SOLID white EE roo...is that unusual? These were both the "free rare/exotic" chick included in MMH orders.

    It's not unusual to have a white EE. They can be very beautiful birds.

    Good grief that is one confused bunch of chickens in that one.
