    Thanks for adding me to the forum. We just recently picked up some chicks to start a flock on our farm. When doing so we found a chick in the bin with the EE that was different from all the others. Even the employee was stumped. We bought it and have been looking on line to see if I could ID. Nothing stands out yet. Anyone want to venture a guess at breed or cross. Will be fun to see how it turns out.

    What a cool looking chick. I am unsure of breed but @Gray Farms will probably be able to tell you.

    Thank you. The employee had me promise to update him with pics once it is older. Since this is the first to stump him in a while.

    I've never seen a chick quite like this one. Just gonna have to let it grow and update with pics. It very well could be an Easter Egger though.
