Mystery Breed????? HELP PLEASE

Discussion in 'What Breed Or Gender is This?' started by LindaD29697, Mar 30, 2016.

    We ordered 38 chicks (they sent 48) from Murray McMurray about 2 weeks ago. Well as you know when they ship them they put all the breeds together in one box for warmth. So I thought I will wait till the feathers start to come in so I can tell what breed is which ones. We ordered Blue Andalusians, Sumatras, Light Brahmas, Egyptian Fayoumis, White Face Black Spanish, and some White Giants. Well I have a mystery breed in the bunch and it is not the 1 free rare chick cause there is 6 of these mystery chicks. Can someone PLEASSSSSSSSSE help me figure this one out?

    Perhaps Whiting True Blue? I've never seen a breed of chicken that looks quite like yours, but whatever it is, it's CUTE!!!!! [​IMG]

    I don't think so. Go to MMM's website and check. The white Giant chicks start off dark, just like your first bird pictured.

    But that white chick doesn't fit any of the breeds you mentioned, maybe it's your rare freebie? Or did they sub something on your order?

    Yes,White giants are darker on top when little, maybe the all yellow ones are your free ones, could be White rocks.

    No not the freebie.... got 10 of these and the only 2 breeds that we ordered 10 of is the Blue Andalusians and the Light Brahmas. But I know it is not the light brahmas cause there is no feathers on the feet. And don't think it is the blue andalusians cause look at these. The one on the perch with the yellow/white one is blue. The one under the white one is blue. Then there is a mystery chick under the blue on the perch and another blue behind the mystery chick. So I am at a loss as what this chick is.

    Your mystery chicks look to be the white Giants to me also.
    This one isn't a white Giant. Wrong down color and wrong leg color. Could be a white Rock or Leghorn.

    Whatever this yellow one is they all have a black spot on top of there heads. Guess I am just going to have to wait a few more weeks to know what they all are. LOL
