    I got a free chick with my mc murray order. They are 5 1/2 weeks old now and I'm curious as to the breed of the freebe (rare chick)
    Any ideas?

    Columbian Wyandotte? It's hard to tell from the pictures but that looks like a rose comb. Not sure.

    Quote:wow.. i did notice it has green legs. but a rooster? hmmm i'm new at this. I was hoping it was a girl.

    Are you sure or is it an educated guess?

    i was thinking EE too with those green looking legs and the small comb. always nice to see that they consider those a rare breed. pretty lacing coming in. [​IMG]

    That would be my guess too. I have 2 EE girls with the same coloring. They are 24 weeks and just now starting to get a red comb.

    It's so funny you say that because I've been looking through mcmurray's rare chick section and the only thing that came even close to this bird was a phoenix. I've never seen one in real life though. I've been doing image searches on about every rare bird they carry and they are so many different shades of the same breed of bird i've been totally confused so I decided to ask here...byc people seem to always know. Thanks! [​IMG]
