    I got it from McMurray Hatchery. Could it be a true Phoenix and not a cross? I ordered the ornamental layer collection but they throw in a free "rare" chick. He may be the free one sonce the rest were supposed to be pullets.

    I'm no pro- but he sure looks like a Phoenix to me. Handsome young man regardless of what he is![​IMG]

    if it was a true Phoenix, it would have white ear lobes, not red. but hatcheries have been know to do crosses.
