This chick came to us with an order as our rare chick from McMurray hatchery. It is only half the size of the standard chicks it came with, so I am guessing bantam of some kind. (I are smart...huh?) LOL It continues to morph into a very interesting looking little thing. Today I noticed that its ear patch thingy (does it have a real name?)was purple! Does anyone have an idea of what this bird is and what gender? Oh! It also makes the sweetest sort of noises, really different than a regular chicken sort of noise. It kind of sounds like the noises a turkey makes. I'd like to get more of them.....if I can only figure out what it is! See the ear? Here's the face, showing the comb. I appreciate any input!
