    Hmm...I'm no expert but MM lists both Dominiques and Cuckoo Marans as exotics...couldn't it possibly be one of those?

    last year my "free exotic chick" from MM looked just like that.....I don't know what it was except that it turned out to be a roo so I re-homed it. Maybe they are playing fast and loose with the term "exotic."

    It is not a Cuckoo Marans because it has yellow legs and the Marans have white/pink legs. Can't tell about the comb. If it has a single, it is a Barred Rock or Barred Holland, if a rose comb, a Dominique.

    It's probably a Barred Rock or Dominique since Cuckoo Marans have grey/pink legs. And yes, so far it looks like a pullet! [​IMG]

    Thanks so much everyone....I dont see a comb coming in at all! nothing! Notta! would that be a "rose comb" coming in late? I was thinking Dominique....there are black "streaks" down the front of her legs...Guess I will know when she is bigger. I was thinking of a name.....Donna the Dominique...Ohhh, im no good at ameing chickens. I just call them all babies! [​IMG]
