    I ordered 25 Cornish X and said ok to the exotic. I called them and made the order and the lady was polite answered all my questions and asked if I wanted an email and text which I said yes. I also gave them two phone numbers which the post office used to call and my first phone was on silent so I'm happy they ask for two. I received notification on Monday my chicks have been shipped they said would arrive any time from the 29th to the 31st. 2 day USPS is what was on the box. I did order the broiler booster and they lady said check under the mat don't throw it away because the booster is under the mat.

    All of my chicks arrived alive. I received my 25 plus 1 extra and the free exotic. I gave them water and let them drink for an hour then fed them. Very active and loud. Now the "exotic" what is he and I say he because that's what I expect.

    It's a pretty little chick but in a week the jumbo Cornish X are going to be twice the size. Luckily I have 10 eggs in the barer hatch day in 7 days! Just trying to find the breed. The only thing I came up with was modern black breasted game bird but the eye makeup is off and not enough dark in the wings and back

    Silver Laced Wyandotte looks close enough :) not quite exotic as it's a standard breed but hey it was free :)

    It could be several of the rare breeds they carry or it could be a standard if they didn't have any rare. I received one freebie that looked like this one is was a Phoenix and she was a pain in the ***! I drive myself crazy trying to figure out what the rare ones are.......best advice give it a few weeks. Let us know as it grows!
