    She sort of looks like an EE, but I don't see any puffy feathers on her face. She's certainly beautiful though!

    There are no puffy feathers on her face like my other easter eggers. Her gray color stood out from 130 chicks that she was chosen from. The place I got her said for every 100 chicks they purchase the hatchery throws in an exotic. So this is my "exotic" bird. I took her because she was so pretty and has turned out to be the sweetest chick I've had yet.

    She's a rooster. There aren't many breeds with those green legs, so that should narrow it down. Most hatcheries freebie "exotic" chick is an EE Roo.

    Hmm, I know there's always the possibility of a roo getting in there, but the place I go orders sexed female vaccinated only. Would they through a free roo in on purpose? And the legs are not that green in person. Not sure why they look like that in pictures, but I already noticed that. Oh boy, I hope she's not a roo!!

    This one looks just like my 4 week old blue Hamburg pullets.
