    This is a hatchery bird..
    I know what it is supposed to be.. but it sure doesn't look like that...
    So what do you folks think it is?

    I'm guessing a rather sad looking polish.

    Either Polish or Spitzenhauben?

    It's supposed to be a black copper Maran. [​IMG]
    It has the copper feathers coming in at the neck...
    It's sort of cool looking... good thing I'm not looking for show quality birds. I wonder if it will lay dark brown eggs.

    I think that someone got their chickens crossed at the hatchery. Can I ask where specifically you got this interesting bird from? I know that crosses happen. I ordered some Light Sussex from Sand Hill and got some crazy looking bird that is definitely NOT an LS. I am going to venture to say you have a BCM crossed with a Polish or Spitz.
    I hope it is a pullet at least [​IMG]

    ohh I think he is so cute. If it is a polish I hope my little one with devil horns looks like that soon.

    My polish babies looked like they were ridden hard and put away wet for a few weeks while their feathers were coming in. My little silver laced still has major bedhead.
