Need Help! Mystery Chicks

Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by RuleysFarm, Mar 11, 2016.

    I recently got a few chicks from TSC, apperently there was a mix up at the hatchery. TSC had no idea what breed they are & the hatchery had no records of the chicks. They sold them as "Mystery Chicks" they all are solid black, black skin, black legs, clean legged, & have an extra toe on each foot. Any help would be awsome!

    That's kinda what they look like but I've never heard of a leg horn having the extra to gene though.

    Welcome to BYC. Do you have photos of your chicks? I have never heard of black Leghorns but, an all black breed is Ayam Cemani - they cost a fortune and I don't see how any hatchery would have them. You could check them out of BYC.
