    I got my MM order today.... I was supposed to get EE, RIR, and one free "exotic chick of their choosing".

    So I know who the EE's are, and I know who the RIR's are, but there are two chicks who look different. Of course, I also ordered 25 chicks and got 30, so its possible I guess that they sent me two chicks of choice.

    Anyway, can you look at these two and give me an idea as to what they are?

    Thanks!!

    I agree- they will feather out initially with blotchy feathers of black and whatever color they are laced with, silver or gold, then around 3 months, you'll start seeing the real lacing come in- they will be gorgeous!!

    When the lacing starts coming in, the crest feathers will be fat or skinny- skinny will denote male.
