    Hello all,

    I ordered 6 cuckoo marans from Ideal Poultry, and when my chicks arrived, they had included several males of different breeds for warmth during shipment. I can identify all of the 'extra' chicks, except for this little guy. He's just about the cutest little chick I've ever seen, and I'd really like to know what he is. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks for looking!

    He looks a lot like my Phoenix did as a chick but I know EE's look like that too.

    It looks like he has green legs- in that case I'd say EE. Love the chipmunk babies!

    It looks to have a beard and green legs... I would say a Easter Egger ( EE )

    Can't be EE; Ideal Poultry doesn't sell that breed.
