    No idea. Cute chick. Last picture looks eerily like an old mans face though.

    I have no idea either. Doesn't look like anything I've ever seen...is it bantam size? Or do you think maybe someone just put it back into the wrong bin after holding it?

    [​IMG] But since there is nothing to compare it's size, to me it looks too big to be a bantam. [​IMG] Looks like a red star.

    If it starts sprouting red and white feathers at 3 weeks, you'll know you have a RSL-red sex link.

    Tractor Supply recieves your garden variety selections from a limited number of larger hatcheries throughout the US. Here in Ohio its Mt Healthy Hatchery. Your guy is most likley a White Laced Red Cornish Bantam. I have purchased several of them from TSC. They can range from a lighter reddish w/ creamy yellow on the breast to a darker reddish color and a light cream on the breast. The light circle around the eyes is typical. He (or she) is a tough little bird very cold hearty and altough it has high feed needs it does have good feed conversion. My guys always started out kinda small and scrawny but end up looking like stout little frogs!
