    Surely does, but I've never seen one that dilute in color. ?

    Looks like a young gold sex link that hasn't gotten his red wings in yet. If you look close you can see it starting to come in

    I see that, but have never seen a sex link cockerel with buff saddle and hackle feathers.

    It looks like a "golden buff" that they sell at californiahatchery

    Here is my "rare and exotic" chick.

    I take it you ordered from Murry Mcmurray?

    I bet their "free exotic chicks" are whatever they have to many of lol

    Not sure what this one is but a rooster i bet

    Looks like a Maran. Or possible Jersey Giant.
