    9731093A-9F6E-411B-84ED-70692DBF9B4D.jpeg Hi! I’m new here I was just wondering if anyone could help identify this baby chick. It’s my freebie from Murray McMurray. He has the cutest little fuzzy feet.
    Thank you!

    Does it have a peacomb (flat)? He looks like a dark Brahma to me. If he has a straight comb, he might be a cochin. Langshans and Faverolles also have fluffy feet, but langshans are supposed to be lightly feathered and Faverolles have muffs and five toes.

    I think Murray carries all of those.

    That way of standing,strong legs,feathers on legs shows most of the indication of a Brahma. And its stripes and dark colours shows as it would dark in colour.
    Not a expert just a guess:frow

    Yes. I would say Dark Brahma. The gender would be hard to tell at this age, but knowing that it is a freebie from Murray Mcmurray I would say probably a rooster. It seems mostly that way when they send a free one.
