Discussion in 'Raising Baby Chicks' started by Chicken0Boy, May 9, 2011.

  1. I just brought home my new shipment of baby chicks! It is second time, but I still love it. [​IMG] I ordered from McMurray with no deaths (EVEN BETTER). The only thing i want to know is what is my 'rare' chick? It has lik a grey/black/brown 'top' body a light colored underbody and wings with a brown head? Any ideas?

    Pics...

    They had a ton of extra partridge rocks hatch / left over this week. If you got your shipment today it's probably that. My local feed store gets all their birds from McMurray (and charges a ton over 6 bucks per bird).

    They were given 50 extra partridge rock straight run to sell.

    It looks like it has a beard/muffs but that could just be the angle of the camera. What kind of comb does it have? Straight line with little "serrated" edges = single comb, flatish spot with maybe some bumps=pea or rosecomb. What color are the legs?
     
  6. I can see it being a patridge rock. I will give y'all more info when I get a chance.

    Definitely not a blue Cochin, it's not blue and the legs are clean. It could be a partridge Rock, but I bet it's an Easter Egger. The legs look green to me.
