    I received an exotic chick as part of my order and I'm hoping you all can help me determine what chick I have.

    The chick's info:
    - 4 days old
    - very curious, more so than the rest of the Red Stars I received
    - seems to have a black undertone on either the skin or base of the feathers, but has yellow feathers
    - black speckles/markings on back
    - feet are a bit orange, but have a blue or black tone in them
    - beak is orange and a bit longer than the Red Stars

    Please let me know if there are any other questions I can answer to help figure out what chick I have. I've also attached pictures.

    Thank you!!

    Almost looks like a Silver Spangled Hamburg to me, though they have blue legs rather than orange. Such a cutie, no matter the breed!

    I just looked up some pictures of Silver Spangled Hamburg and he/she looks exactly like the pictures I'm finding. The legs do have a blue color to them, but almost mixed with a little orange/yellow.

    Thanks! [​IMG]

    I definitely think it is a Star Spangled Hamburg, as a previous post suggested. I've attached updated pictures, but now I'm
    wondering if it is a rooster or not. Any insight?
