After receiving the chicks we ordered in the mail, we noticed that we were given an extra chick and wanted to ask if anybody knew what breed it is. They are two weeks old. Any help is appreciated.

Wonder if it's one of their Rhode Island Blues.
We ordered two Barred Rocks and two Rhode Island Blues, this extra one doesn’t really resemble either of the other two breeds. Maybe it’s a rooster of the same breed?

Well, the RI Bues are hybrids so there can be a lot of variations in the chicks.

Now the chick looks blue to me. Is that really the case or is it black? If black then I'd say black sex link.

Yeah, it’s just that the other Rhode Island Blues don’t have the brown markings on their faces like this one has. Also, the beaks and feet are different in color. If it’s a Black Sex Link, what gender would you say it is?
