    This is a beautiful chick, can anyone tell me what kind? The only one that came close in the McMurray book is a Dark Cornish.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Dominque or Minorca--depending what the underside look like.

    I'm leaning towards Dominique--I don't think McMurray has Minorca's anyway.

    Looks to be a pea comb... + poofy cheeks (Muffs) ... I'm guessing an EE [​IMG]

    Doesn't MMH do an exotic/rare for their mystery chick?

    I think EE's count as exotic for them.

    Dunno what it is, but it's cute!
