    I think this was our free 'exotic' chick from MMH, but I can't seem to pinpoint what breed it is. Can anyone make a guess? And is it too soon to tell if its a boy or girl?

    It looks a little darker in the pic than it really is. Its got a greyish blue tint to it.

    Hmmm, black legs....could be ameraucana or black jersey giant....

    EDIT: Looking through the MM list of black legged/dark legged chickens, here are some possibilities:
    Black Australorp
    Black Giants
    Black Star
    Black Mincoras

    There are a couple others but I didn't think yours looked like the chicks pictured. You may have to wait till it gets a little bigger....

    I was leaning towards Blue Andalusian too. I have been waiting to see if any black feathers start coming in, but they all look grayish blue to me.

    Whatever it is, I hope it turns out to be a female. My neighbors wont be happy with crowing lol.
