    Okay everyone here is a good shot of my MM Rare breed which came free with my order. Notice that he/she is much smaller than the others.. Can you tell what breed this is.. My guess is that it's also a He, but is there anyway I can tell?

    Let me know,

    My guess wpuld be a silver or golen lace Wyndotte. Go to estas hatchery. com and look them up. They have really good pic.

    Looks like an Ameracauna to me. I've had several with that exact color pattern, especially the eye stripes. Does he have little cheek tufts?

    I'd bet it's a little roo... usually the filler birds are! No way to tell until s/he's a little bigger.

    Too small to see... looks like a GLW to me, too. I just got one as a packing peanut in my order, and that's the closest thing I can figure. [​IMG]
    Here's mine...

    Looks like one of my ameraucana. She's 3 weeks ole and feathering out the same way. She also has that "Cleopatra" look to her eyes. HTH

    My vote is for Gold Laced Wyandottes. The baby pics and the older ones look very much like my own GLW. I have different breeds and I have noticed that my GLW had extremely soft feathers as babies and now as pullets. Even much softer and silkier than my silver laced. She/he sure is a cutie.
