    I love this section of BYC -- love reading all of the posts and always appreciate people taking their time to read mine too.

    My son is DYING to know what his "fancy" is going to look like.... pics aren't the greatest but I think it looks like a pale Blue Andalusian -- our friends ordered 50 cornishxrocks and they always send a "fancy". This year they are giving it to us and my son gets to see it every day since they use our barn for raising them for 4H and to eat :)

    Any idea? I looked and looked thru breeds, I guess it could be a few different ones. Its feet are not yellow, not quite dark either.

    We have 3 ISA Brown and 3 New Hampshires (one very beautiful Rooster) - so we have pretty normal looking chickens. It is cool to see a unique looking chick like this little guy.

    McM doesn't have many chickens that come in blue, think the Andalusian, Cochin, EE and BLRW are about it, so your chick almost has to be a Blue Andalusian.

    Thank you so so much. I appreciate your answers.


    Those are the cornishxrocks.... they are really weird ones. It was stretching in that PIC. Yes....they tend to get let issues. Lol

    Looks like an Andy roo. The hens from what I can tell tend to be lighter grey/blue while the roos are dark grey/blue. My Blue Andy chicks are the trophy birds of my flock. They're only a few weeks old and they're absolutely beautiful already.
