Hello everyone. Your knowledge and expertise has been wonderful as I have been lurking around these past few weeks. I am the proud newbie owner of 24 3 week old chicks- black stars, red stars and RIR, as well as this free rare chick. Does anyone know what he/she is? Thanks for your input.

More than likely it will be a male. Just because hatcheries usually have a surplus of males, the "surprise chick" is one of their ways of relieving some of that surplus. Most people I know who have gotten the "surprise chick," the chick has turned out to be male.
