    Sorry the last one is sideways :-( The long tail makes me think Phoenix, but I can't be sure...

    Thanks for your help!

    100% sure it is NOT a phoenix and if it is supposed to be .... i'd sue. I wouldn't rule out egg type however, hactheries love to use eggers as fillers for small orders.

    And on another note, That chick is quite lovely and i can not wait to help you id the breed when he ages just a month or so. post more pics please!

    I will keep you posted! I am a little afraid it's a roo now... It is such a pretty light blue/silver color, with grey legs with some yellow on them.

    What is an egger? Do you mean an easter egger?? Cuz I would love one of them!!!
