    Got this guy back in August from Murray mcmurray. He's a beautiful bird. I'm just not 100% sure what he is. He may have been the "free rare exotic" they tossed in or he may have been supposed to be a hen. I ordered Auracana/Americans which were all supposed to be hens. [​IMG]
    He's about 4.5 months and crowing. Any idea what he is? He's the white one in front. His tail is mostly black with some hints of teal and purple when the sun hits it. Pretty bird! He's also got small tufts on either side of his face and olive colored legs.
    TIA!

    He's an Easter egger, often sold as aracuana or ameraucana. They're a common choice for the rare exotic chick, or could have been a Oops from your sexed pullet order.
