    I ordered 30 chickens from Mcmurray Hatchery and they threw in one free "rare" chick. I have no idea what it is.
    Legs are blue. Looks like it will be white but has a grey or tan streak on top of its head. I looked at the website and the closest I could match it to is a blue andalusian. what do you guys think?

    I'm not sure ~ does it have puffy cheeks? Maybe an EE?

    Pea combed, muffs, and green legs.. McMurray commonly throws in EE's as "Rare chickens"... So I vote it is an easter egger.

    EE chick. Rare because they might lay green eggs, I guess. And because their heritage is ... varied. [​IMG]
