    Ordered a white egglayer "grab bag" and a rare breed "grab bag" from Meyer. Wondering what this one is. IMG_20170521_170348.jpg IMG_20170521_170315.jpg

    That looks like an Ancona or an exchequer leghorn to me.

    Thank you. I think you're right. At first, the all black back had me fooled, thinking she couldn't be either of those, but when I googled the Exchequer, I saw several at this age with all black backs... so that's probably it. The Ancona seem to be much darker when mature, so I guess I'll wait until she feathers out completely before I'll know for sure. :)
