    Here is my free mystery chick from MM. At first I thought it was one of the Golden Campines but it's more brown and has chipmunk like striping on its back. My best guess (by descriptions given in the MM catalog) is a Single Comb Brown Leghorn. Anybody else have any guesses???

    I would say Easter Egger....just because of the olive legs and chipmunk coloration.
    Good Luck with the chicks!

    I hope your right, a Phoenix would be awesome. Guess I'm just going to have to be patient and wait a few weeks to know for sure.

    I had just got my order of chicks from MPC and your chick looks exactly the same as my ameraucana and my single comb brown leghorn. But it looks more like my ameraucana.
