    HI!!
    I am Josh, and my lovely wife is Amiee. We live just outside Tacoma, WA. I am in Construction, and my wife tends the flock (both literally, and figuratively as we have 5 wonderful children [​IMG][​IMG] )

    Our flock consists of most Heritage Breeds, such as our 5 Buff Orpingtons & 8 Rhode Island Reds that we got for meat and eggs on Feb 14 as a "couple days" old from a local organic store. Great store, great staff, steep prices, but great quality).
    Our other flock members are 3 Black Sex Links, 2 Plymouth Barred Rocks, & 1 "Extra". Reason I call him "Extra", is that he was in the bin with the PBRs, but the coloration was so unique I had to select it as well (usually one offs are left for last, neglected; so we are magnetically attached lol). BTW, the yellow is not a stain... It is identical on both sides. I am also going to post pics of him in the Breeds section for some opinions. We look forward to meeting many friendly people here.

    I am beginning to think that it could be one of the Hatchery's mismatched cross breeds that they use for freebies lol.. I am king of hoping that it is a cockerel, I can only imagine how that plumage would fill out!!

    Hi, Josh and Amiee, welcome to BYC. Post pictures as the chick grows - we'll have a better chance of ID'ing him later.

    Oh, we will. We are starting to track a couple of our favorites with photos. I am beginning to think (with the help of a cpl members in the Breeds Forum) that "he" is a Partridge Rock... that would be awesome!! Cockerel or Pullet!!
