    Thanks everyone. She is really docile and and has the prettiest feathers. I just love her to death. When I ordered my chicks I was apparently supposed to get a rare breed chick but for the life of me I can't figure which one is the "rare"
    I was thinking she was. Ooops. [​IMG]
    Maybe I am mistaking another one of my chicks. I'll try and post more pics later of the rest of them. Hopefully someone can spot the "rare breed chickie" [​IMG]

    I think it is a blue!

    If it is black it is proubly from the blue family (I have had a lot of bantam blue & lack cochins but, I wouldn't be able to say what quality you had yet)

    Quote:Sorry, I should of been more clear. All I mean is not Show Quality. Should make a perfect pet or feathered family member(I have alot of those).

    A chick from Show breeders would have alot more feathering on its feet and legs and be feathered all the way to the end of its middle toe.

    Oh! Thanks for the info. When you show your chickens I'm guessing that you wouldn't purchase them from a hatchery then? Curious because these were purebred(whatever that means:)) I guess maybe I should educate myself a bit more but since they were for family fun-eggs and basically pets I should be good to go. Interesting about the feathers on the middle toe. Thanks again. Any guess whether it's a male or female?

    As far as quality goes, it doesn't matter at all unless you plan to show them. Every one of my darlings is "low quality" hatchery stock chickies and they are WONDERFUL!!!!! Perfect pets, lay beautiful eggs, love to be cuddled. She is an adorable baby!!!! [​IMG]
