    So, I recently ordered some chickens from Murray McMurray hatchery. When I was checking out on the website, I was given the option to get a free mystery "rare and/or exotic chicken." Being a total cheapskate, I automatically went "[​IMG]FREE!!!!" and had to get it. I know it is unlikely to actually be rare or exotic, but I'm still really excited. In anticipation of my new chicks, I would really love and appreciate it if you would please tell what your free chick was and post a pic.

    Thanks.

    I have ordered from them before and have gotten Easter Egger roosters, a Polish (IDK if hen or roo since I sold her very early on), and I can't remember any others sorry.

    Enjoy your chicks when they arrive!!!

    I have gotten a dark brahma cockeral, and a old English game bantam cockeral. We didn't keep either one.

    It seems like they only give out males as their free exotic chick. Mine is a male as well

    I didn't order any roos for my flock figuring the mystery chick would be one. Only time will tell... I have no clue what it is but here is a picture!! [​IMG]

    Ordered 25 Ameraucana / Easter Egger chicks from McMurray. Post office called me at 6:15 this morning to come pick them up. All happy & healthy!!

    My mystery chick is a white crested black polish. I am wondering if they sent two mystery chicks though. I have 27 chicks total, but I should have only 26. Anyone ever gotten two mystery chicks with their 25 chick order? Or is the extra probably just an extra Easter Egger?
