    Got her x him from Valley Farm hatchery . I got pure breed and mixed breed brown egg special. Very pretty bird... Cuddles the younger chicks. Age 6 weeks . Regardless of sex I'm keeping it . IMG_20180402_174638.jpg IMG_20180401_092255.jpg

    If you can't tell by the pictures it is yellow /buff and black and blue barred feathers .

    OK... Cockerel not a problem... Only problem is out of 15 chicks he makes #6. Kinda high for all pullets.

    I'll post better pictures but I think I have a tricolor rainbow meat bird. Hatched on 2-22 at the hatchery. He /she weighs 3.75 pounds at 7 weeks!
