    This girl came from the Meyer hatchery mystery bin about 5-6 months ago. She is getting pretty big compared to our other chickens. Any ideas what she may be?

    She kinda sorta reminds me of a splash marans but you would expect feathering on the legs and feet.

    I checked their website, so this is the only possible color according to their lists.[​IMG]

    They also have Blue Orpingtons, and warn that the chicks may be splash. Either way we got a $18 chick for $2 so I'm happy!
