This is my McMurray Exotic Bonus Chick. Anyone know what breed it is?
WOW how can you tell thats a cockeral really I want to know I am really bad at sexing chicks. I do agree EE though
I disagree with EE, I think it is going to be something else with muffs. One because the color would be unusual for an EE and 2 because the leg color. But I would agree with cockerel, because all the extras are almost always cockerels.
could it be blue aurocana (sp)
im not sure but are marans black cause i think it might be a maran
Here is another angle
He doesn't look anything like the various Ameraucana chicks here http://www.ameraucana.org/scrapbook.html
Too dark to be Favs (also puffy cheeked) I think?
Clean legs so not silkie?
Thinking poof there has to be a mutt of some kind... I think... I'd lean to EE as well, since we know hatcheries sell EEs as Ameraucanas... and they are bound to have leftover cocks they'll use as peanuts... seems the most logical option... but I'll still root for the cutie to be a girl. Really is too early to tell unless you're a whiz at vent sexing... it COULD happen...
Whatever it is, it sure is cute!
It is an Easter Egger (hatchery Ameruacana) chick. That color is actually pretty common for EE's from hatcheries and the muffs and leg color fit the description. Most of the time they are included as the rare or unusual chick because of their ability to lay colored egg (shades of blues, greens, pink/brown). Also, most of the time the freebies end up being cockerels. That's why a previous posted said EE cockerel as well.
