    First time with raising a flock of chickens, I got 20 Buff Orpingtons and one mystery chick from Murray McMurray [​IMG] - I don't know what kind he or she is, I posted a photo…Can anyone identify for me? :)

    hmmmm well with out knowing what comb it has its harder to guess. It looks kinda like some partridge rocks I got from Mcmurray a few years ago.

    Thanks. I was kind of thinking the same too, just wasn't sure. Partridge Rocks are awesome :)

    So cute, and I love those little squiggle-marks! Seeing that chick just makes me want more chicks even more desperetly than I already do!

    Just a heads-up, Mystery Bird is probably a rooster, and I hope you are fine with that!.
    I'm sure you are compeletly aware that many hatcheries that offer a free chick often give away a male chick, because it means one less rooster for them to deal with!.

    If your lucky, and 'he's a hen, congrats! I hope your adventures in chicken-raising will be wonderful!
