The black and white baby is my MMM free chick. Anyone have any clue? The black ones were sold as black sex link, but they are so much larger than the others the same age (the red ones are definitely ISA Brown) and they just don't look like black sex link, which I've had before. The black ones do have yellow on the undersides of their feet, but it makes no sense to me that Jersey Giants would be sold as hybrid birds... Can anyone clear up my mysteries?

I know, I've looked at the MMM "rare breed" list until I'm blue in the face, and none of them seem to match this little girl. Splash Andalusian, maybe? But I've had Andalusians from MMM before, and this baby just doesn't look like one.

First thought of mine was Silver Spangled Hamburg until I realized she has a single comb. Sigh.. I have no clue.. She looks mixed quite honestly.. At least it looks to be a girl..

Sorry, no. She was kind of grey all over with a bit of white on the front. I looked all over the MMM website trying to match her, but couldn't. I assumed that we'd figure it out once she got older, but she's still a mystery.

I doubt she's mixed breed, since she came from MMM.
