Does anyone know what "rare breed" this is?

    The dark mottled chick is the free "rare breed" that the hatchery promised. I have scoured all the chick websites, and still don't know what it is. Will send more pics tomorrow when I get batteries for the cam[​IMG]era.

    Which hatchery? Many of them seem to think EE's are rare breeds [​IMG] Personally I see them everywhere. But this is just an assumption soo hopefully I've bumped you for a far more experienced person to give u a real answer [​IMG]

    We got them from Mcmurray, first time ordering. Husband and I are new to chickens, but we are totally obsessed! Whatever breed it is, we will love her. I think it's a her.

    Looks like an EE to me. Its probably a boy though. They like to do that. So if you order like 8 pullets they will send you like 1 "rare Chick" It is most likely a boy.

    I'm totally new here but I vote Ameraucana as well. I lost my two Ameraucana babies a few weeks ago and they looked exactly like that one. Are the others Wellsummers? Wondering bc I just got two of those and there's a strong resemblance there too [​IMG]
