    We got this little guy with our meat bird order from McMurray, but I tried looking on their website and they have no images that look like him.

    He is 4 months old- bantam, v comb

    That's a Sicilian Buttercup, and I don't think they're supposed to be in the meat bird order they are an ornamental breed.

    Wow! How neat is that? He's way to small to eat but he'll add color to your flock.

    Oh yeah he was our free bird! lol... So that is why we had no idea what he was. My daughter is using him for her showmanship bird this week at fair, so I thought it a good idea to know what the heck he is!

    He is quite pretty! :)

    Thank you!!!
