    I have 13 chicks that are 4 weeks old. I ordered 10 from MPC and they gave me 6 extras (3 died) Well...1 of the chicks is very odd looking. Was never fuzzy like the other chicks and it has long gangly legs. I assumed it was an EE because the coloring is similar (chipmunk striped, but paler) It doesn't have the cheeks. Today I saw a photo of a ringnecked pheasant chick and it was identical to this long gangly unfuzzybutt chick. Is it possible MPC sent me a pheasant as an extra or is this unheard of??? Any other ideas what this mystery chick could be??? I will post a picture as soon as I can....
