    Ok here we go again. Still trying to find out who is what lol. So before I ask let me run down what I ordered from Murray Mcmurry.

    8 buff O hens

    1 Buff O rooster

    2 buttercup hens

    2 whiting true blue hens

    2 whiting true green hens

    2 buff laced polish hens

    That's 17 total. Then they added a free mystery exotic chick which should make a total of 18 chicks.

    When the chicks arrived I had 20. I noticed some extra chicks that resembled buff O chicks.

    Today I was looking them over and noticed now that feathers are coming in one of the chicks that looked like all the rest of the buff O chicks has lighter feathers than all the rest.

    Can this bird be my free mystery exotic chick?

    Can someone help identify it?

    First picture is a buff o on the left and the lighter chick on the right.

    Welll i checked murry mcmurray and they dont carry amberlinks.

    However I just found this and the color matches on a lightly feathered chick

    Looks like those wing feathers are white? And are the legs yellow?

    Then it isn't a Minorca. They have white legs. The chick does resemble a red sex link pullet though that doesn't really fit the bill of exotic. I suppose it could be a whiting true green.

    Ok well that's very possible however that means one of the others is the exotic. Oh geeze time for a chick line up.
