    This is my free rare chick from Murray McMurray. I think it's a Silver Spangled Hamburg, which would be the same free chick I got in my last order. Thoughts?

    This little nugget will be four weeks old in a few days. I know I'm being impatient, but any thoughts on sex? The last SSH was a hen, I'd love it if this one was a roo.

    Yep, SSH! Looks like a pullet for now, but maybe you could keep us posted? [​IMG]

    No obvious signs of being a cockerel yet, as far as breed I'm not sure, I've never known any hamburgs :)

    Ah darn. I think it is a pullet as well, was hoping though that someone would contradict me. Wishful thinking! :) Thanks all, and I will keep you posted.

    I'm thinking pullet but, don't know the breed. Most people want females, so if yours is one,. maybe you could trade on the breed thread.
