    hi everyone!
    i got this chick in an order from mcmurray hatchery...i think its a little roo, about 3 1/2 weeks...he doesnt look like any of the breeds i ordered. the packing label said that they didnt add the "free rare chick", that instead they added an extra pullet of a breed i ordered. so...i was wondering if anyone reconized this breed?...maybe an americauna?[​IMG]

    Just an FYI hatcheries don't actually sell Ameraucanas, despite what they say.


    The bottom one though is an "Easter Egger" (what they call ameraucanas) the top one looks either like a Fayoumi or a Campine. How colorful was it as a chick?
