    I ordered 30 chicks from McMurray Hatchery and received 32 about 5 wks ago.This is one of the extras so I'm assuming it's a "he". Anyone know what breed (the chick on the left)?

    I have other BSL pullets that don't look like this. Is this what a cockerel would look like?

    No, BSL cockerels are barred. Not all BSL pullets look alike, though, since they are technically mixed-breed. What kind of comb does s/he have? Maybe Easter Egger?

    No, the cockrel would be black and white barred
