    This chick has different markings than the other chicks. Instead of being brownish yellow like the rest it has 2 brownish-red stripes down its back.
    Is it the same breed with just a few oddball markings or did it get mixed up in the wrong group?
    We ordered brown egg laying chicks.
    Could it be male?


    Here are pictures of the marked chick:

    And here is a pic of the non-marked chicks:

    Any ideas?

    That's what I thought, too! It's ok that your spelling sucks, nobody's perfect... But you gotta admit, that's kind of funny if you think about it!
    Edited for spelling (go figure) because this keyboard sucks...
