    I'm guessing a he. Is about the same size as my spangled hamburg chicks (fairly small). Clean legs that are grey. I'm at a loss.[​IMG]

    Possibly a blue Andalusian? Going to be beautiful with that blue trait what ever it may be.

    I got a McMurray free chick last week that looks just like yours. I've been assuming it is a blue Andalusian based on the breeds they have available. Someone else recently posted a similar chick they also got as a freebie from McMurray last week. Looks like they hatched out more andalusians than they needed!

    Hello Fellow BYCers.

    I have the same issue with 3 chicks I received from McMurray. I ordered 3 buff rocks but only received 2, I however received a unique chick instead. I also received 2 additional unique looking chicks with feathers growing on their legs which I thought may have been the 2 free exotics listed. This has left me with 3 unidentified unique chicks. PLEASE HELP ME IDENTIFY THESE CHICKS! They are now 5 weeks with no identity. [​IMG]

    These are the 3 unique looking chicks we have not identified , there are 2 of the middle chick.

    The middle one looks like my "freebie" from a few months ago(early may). He is still feathering but I believe he is a Dark Brahma and a nice bird. The other 2 I'm not sure about.

    This is Scoops Maracas the end of June.

    Hello,

    Thank you so very much! I appreciate your input there is only one other breed unidentified. It is so similar to the brahma, but has no feathers on it's legs.[​IMG]

    Do you have a pic of them when they were little, little guys? That might help.
