    Today the local feed store was offering as many free chicks as you wanted when you purchase a bag of feed. I walked away with 6 more chicks. :) I have a little mystery guy hanging out with everyone. Care to help me identify it (breed and sex if possible)?

    Wings are speckled black (not a solid true black, kind of a murky black-brown-grey color). There are two small smudges of black on the top of its head. It has peach feet and legs. There is a black rim around the edge of the beak. Smaller than my other birds of the same age (white rocks) and very mellow.

    I have no idea where they got them. If I had to guess it would be Dunlap Hatchery located in Boise, about 5 hours from here. Who knows though. :)

    Good to know...I was racking my brain trying to figure out what breed that could possibly be. I'm glad I didn't google, then I would have really felt stupid. :D
