    My baby Australorps arrived today. Everyone is in great shape, settling in, eating and drinking. I got them from McMurray Hatchery who sends a Rare Breed Chick with orders over 25 (I think). Anyway, there's this odd-looking ugly duckling among my beauties. He has a poofy head and side burns, is the only yellow fellow among my dark girls. He has feathered legs, too, and a distinct dark spot on his back between his wings and the back of his head. He's kind of bossy - that's why I've decided he's a he and not a she.

    Does anyone know what breed he might be? I've searched feathered legged large breeds on McMurray and didn't find a chick that looks like this. Obviously, they have them, though.

    Thanks for looking.

    Oh my goodness! They're beautiful! Our little guy does indeed have too many toes. He's full size, not a bantam. I hope he turns out to be sweet. (-:
