    We received this cutie with a mixed bunch of chicks. His/her neck is throwing me off a bit. I can not figure out which breed or if maybe it may be a turkey!!!

    Thanks for your input. [​IMG]

    I didn't think so but the hatchery sends 1 "mystery" chick.

    First of all it is beautiful!! It is NOT a turkey, I would guess that it is some sort of Asian game breed. It looks like a cockerel, but these are just guesses.

    Oh I didn't even think about game birds. Thank you. And, yes he sure is a looker. I love all of our feathered friends.
