    It was my mystery chick that I got with my order today. It is so cute, just don't have any idea, and I've looked and looked at other chicks.

    Looks like an Easter Egger! What a wonderful chickie! Are the legs bluish or greenish? I can't tell from the pics. If so, definitely an EE! Yea!!! Green or blue eggshellsssssss!!![​IMG]

    I shoulda added that! DUH! No, the legs are orangish-yellow and there is no feathering on the legs.

    Where did you order from? Most hatcheries have images of the breeds as chicks ... you could check their website.

    Was it from MMH? If you look at their Araucana/Ameraucana chick pic.... it shows many with yellow legs. So , maybe it is an EE???

    I ordered from MMH, went through their pics, went thru pics here and raising chicks! This one doesn't look like any of my EE's when they were babies.

    I got my order from MMH also and I have a chick that looked exactly like yours when was little... now she looks like this:

    I'm trying to find out what breed she is as well. Someone suggested she was an araucana (the easter egger). I ordered 2 araucanas but any other pullet looks like her!!


    I also have another "sui generis" looking chicken, which I think is the "free rare" one:

    I'll let you know the results of my research [​IMG]

    I guess I got another EE then. My Aracauna Goldie looks just like yours. Guess we both got EE's!
