    Hi, I was wondering if someone could help me figure out what kind of chick my "mystery chick" is? I ordered some chicks from McMurray Hatchery that inculed a free exotic rare breed "mystery" chick. I have narrowed it down to two possible chicks, one of which is a female white orpington.

    Here is a picture of the one I think is the white orpington-

    Anyone know what it is?

    Hi Envirogirl11! Thank's for the welcome! I should also mentione that they are drty from standing under the perches, and neither one has any brown or yellow coloring:p
    Just white and grey, with blue/grey tinted legs. The chick in the second pic has longer wings and tail feathers, and the first one is more compact (thicker body) and more grey coloring [​IMG]

    Any ideas anyone? Someone said they thought it might be a different colored phoenix, maybe a blue duckwing phoenix, or a white phoenix?

    I think the white orp would be the lighter of the two. They sure are cute!...Gloria

    Look at the feathersite.com and look at the adults along w/chicks, look at and read about leg and bottom of feet coloring. I just spend a half hour to figure my 10 from the school hatch are most likely all three types of EE (easter eggers, araucana, ameraucana) while 6 are black and 4 are red.

    Look at the links posted for further identification from the breed pic/info from the feathersite, too.
