    This chick was a free rare chick added to my order of BLRW. So far I have had no luck figuring it out and i'm just curious what breed he/she may be. 7 weeks old and the same size as my BLRW, so i know its not a bantam. clean legged, purplish legs, black and white mostly, with red in the wings.

    Looks like an Easter Egger, it has a pea comb and based on the comb size and color for it's age I'm actually leaning towards a little boy ...

    Thanks for the help, at least i can plan ahead to hopefully find him a home. I'm trying to keep to one breed of chicken.

    If it helps any, I had an EE cockerel that was similar in color and turned out to be quite gorgeous fully grown! Hopefully that helps finding him a forever home :thumbsup
