    HELLO!
    I am new to chicken keeping and so far I love it. I bought all the "common" breeds: RI reds, barred rocks, buff's, osterlorps, welsummers, etc. I also bought them all in sets of 2 or 3 so that I could easily tell them apart. Problem is, this little girl showed up in my flock and I have no idea what she is and she does not look like the other two she came with!? The one standing up with the long neck feathers and the bluish wing feathers. She is very pretty, but I would sure like to know what she is. Anyone with more chicken experience have any ideas???
    Thanks!

    That isn't a little girl it's quite a large boy! Not sure about breed though but I am sure someone with more knowledge will be along soon to help you. Good luck.

    Easter egger cockerel. Did you order from a hatchery that offers a free "rare or exotic" chick? If so, that's it right there!
