    A local lady and I split an order from McMurray...I was supposed to get 2 Ameracaunas and 5 Red Stars. They sent a couple extra packing peanuts and one was another Ameracauana...she didn't want it, so I took it. As for the Red Stars, I picked the ones I wanted, including one that was much yellower than the rest, but still had some of the light brown markings. Well, as it's feathers came in, it became very clear that it's not a Red Star at all, but a???? If you can tell me what breed this nearly 10 week old, I would be immensely grateful. Also, if it's possible, this young, is it a rooster? For some reason, I suspect so. Thanks so much! [​IMG]

    Im not sure what breed it is, but with those legs it could def. be a rooster, again if i knew the breed that would help with the gender at this age too.

    It looks like a white leghorn rooster. I actually had one of these until I gave him away a few days ago and this looks just like him. I bet he was supposed to be one of your "packing peanuts." [​IMG]

    I was kinda thinking Leghorn, but I thought they were supposed to be pure white. "He" still has some very light brown patches that are kinda hard to see in the pics.

    At 10 weeks? No way that is a Cornish X. It would be huge and barely waddling by this point. Does look like a rooster though.
