    Here
    are two pictures of the mystery chick we got in May this year.
    We bought 25 Wyandotte (26 arrived, one passed away a week later) and this mystery chick.
    She has feathers on her feet and she's is the tough guy with the others.

    We would like to enter her in the state fair so we need to know what type of chicken she is.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated. We don't exspect to win just want to enjoy the experience.

    Thank you.
    Dave in New Hampshire.

    ETA - [​IMG] and typically mystery chicks thrown in with orders from hatcheries are boys. He looks very nice though! [​IMG]

    Excellent timing to join the site (karma) as I have one of those (mostly grey). She is the most friendly bird of all my hens. Now I know what I have, thanks.[​IMG]

    Yup, pullets have double lacing all over, no white patches. Definitely a cockerel. This is what a pullet looks like:
