    A friend told me, he thought this might be a Blue Andalusion. I have no idea...
    It was a mystery bird that came from McMurray back in Feb. This little bird should be 4 weeks old
    today or tomorrow. I ordered 5 each of 5 species of bantams, so I assume this one is a bantam too?

    FWIW, it never was fuzzy like my other chicks either.

    Looks like my 4 week old Blue Hamburg. Can it fly really well? Mine do.

    It is very skittish in the brooder box. I can hold it, and it calms down.
    It does not like being alone, it will start chirping real loud.
    It's a really neat little bird, I hope it turns out to be something good.

    I guess I should check to see if it has any comb yet, and what type.
    My friend just told me that a single comb was more than likely Andalusion
    I will check when I get home this evening.

    Sean I am thinking since you got him from McMurray and he/ she has clean legs it has to be something off of the list of clean legged chicks they sell. That is where I would start. I would look at that list and start marking off of the list birds you know its not. For instance any white birds or barred birds. When I have a second later I will look again. I don't think it is a Blue Andalusion because, that isn't on the list of available birds. That is just my guess.

    I was thinking possibly Orpington but, I don't think I saw them on the list either.
