    [​IMG] I would like help to figure out what breed and possibly what gender my surprise chick is?
    Okay my order came in today from www.healthychicksandmore.com. I ordered them March 3rd and they emailed that they would ship on March 6th, well first thing this morning PO called and they were here! I have to say that was fast and I really liked dealing with this company. =)

    Okay so they had a promotion : For a limited time! Receive a FREE chick from our rare breed collection! Here are the chickens offered in their rare breed collection:
    Araucana/Ameraucana,
    Black Giant---probably not
    Partridge Rock,
    Golden Laced Wyandotte,
    Silver Laced Wyandotte---probably not
    Speckled Sussex
    Buff Orpington----don't think so...
    and Brahmas.

    Anyways here is my free gold chick that I received with my order of barred rock pullets [​IMG]
    Sorry, I really didn't know I had something on my shirt until this photo!

    I was debating between the Partridge Rock and Golden Laced Wyandotte.

    I also have a feeling it's a he. I suspected the company probably has less demand for roosters and this would be a good way to get them out. Also looking a another forum for sexing speckled sussex his coloring is more blurred and he is also bigger than my other chicks and more bossy. It could just be a breed trait though so I can't be sure till he grows up! [​IMG] If it is a he that is fine with me we don't have any laws about roosters that I know of.
