Silver Spangled Hamburg... or maybe not? Supposed to be rare.

    I ordered from a hatchery (McMurray) and they threw in this little one, which I was told was a rare breed. Taking a look at the hatchery's list of rare breeds, I cant seem to find anything that this little one looks like. However, he is listed under their white layers, from what I could tell, as a Silver Spangled Hamburg. I even had someone else show me theirs, as a chick and grown, and it looks just like mine! Could it be something else? Either way, I am happy! Beautiful friendly baby!!

    Could you post a close-up photo of its comb? If the comb is a rosecomb, then it is a Silver Spangled Hamburg.

    Looks like a rose comb to me, but since I just had to google the difference, I will let you decide! :)[​IMG]
