    I ordered some eggs from mcmurray hatchery. I bought the rarest of the rare assortment. And only 4 chicks hatched. I can guess what the other 3 are but this little and I do mean LITTLE chick has me stumped. I've gone through the list they have that says what you could get and none of them chick wise look like this little guy/gal. It's half the size of the other chicks it hatched with. It hatched from a creaming very light brown egg. No feathers on it feet what so ever. Anyone have a guess what it might be and it's gender?

    The only thing I can think of is Serama because you mentioned him being little. He is really too young to know for sure though.

    Could the hatchery have grabbed a wrong egg? Serma was not part of the list but at this point I've gone through the entire list and it doesn't look any chicks that are one the list. For all I know it could be some mini buff orpington lol.

    Honestly I don't know. [​IMG] Could be...? I'd wait a little longer and see how he feathers out.
