    Adorable chicks! It may be an Easter Egger but for some reason I don't think it is [​IMG]. Where did you get them?

    Oh! I forgot to add that lol... They came from McMurray Hatchery; Anconas, Black Australorps, Silver Spangled Hamburgs... And mystery white fluffball... It's bigger than the rest, bluish face... Definitely not a banty or feathered shank breed.

    Maybe a White Rock, White Leghorn, or White Marans(if McMurray has those). Could be a White Wyandotte. Something white! There are a lot of possibilities at this stage. It's a cutie though.

    Well the gray face made me track it to YouTube...videos if hundreds more f chicks.... I think it's a Blue Andalusian!


    Looks just like the white one....

    It puts all sorts of possibilities in the breeding next spring if it is! :D

    Now it better be a pullet; its awfully big and friendly.... In ten weeks I'll know ;)

    So by that theory, it would mature into a light blueish white with some blue flecks?

    Breeding project with the Australorps for sure, lol now I'm kinda hoping its a roo ;)

    Yes, it should turn out to be the color you mentioned. Australorp and Andalusian sounds like a gorgeous mix!

    Update on Blue, our mystery....Cockerel?

    2 weeks, pretty young, but he is the biggest, bravest, and most personable one if the bunch... His comb is also starting to pink up.... I'm unfamiliar with the breed, am I assuming correctly?
