    I have been looking for blue cochin chicks for a long time, so my husband went to the feed store to pick up hay today and cam home with this...

    it was marked as a miscelaneous banty....so...any idea what it might be? He knew it wasn't a cochin (or any other breed that we raise) but thought that it might be the next best thing. Any thoughts would be great. I have NO idea.

    I was thinking that was a possibility. If thats the case, what color will it end up?

    Send away for a catalog to the mcmurray hatchery. They have a large selection of bantams and standard size chickens with pictures of what the chicks look like. I've found it helpful.

    I doubt a hatchery would carry bantam Blue Ameraucanas. It could be a Blue OEGB.

    What kind of comb does it have?
