    It's really bothering that none resemble it enough for me to even guess. I wonder if it's just a poor quality example of one of the breeds that Ideal carries or somehow they sent you a mixed breed??? I am very interested in an update to see how the mystery chick turns out!

    another thing is what a hatchery calls a "rare," breed generally is NOT rare.

    Does anyone think that the 2nd chick is a Ameraucana?

    The chick has pink legs so I'm not sure if it would be an Easter egger type
