    This chicken is brown with copper streaks in its feathers. It's 6 weeks old, we ordered 25 assorted straight run birds from Mcmurray and we've figured out what most of the birds are but this one has us stumped.

    That was quick, thanks for the info. I'm thinking this might be the rare or unusual chick that Mcmurray gives you.

    I think McMurray does consider gold laced wyandottes a rare breed, so it may be indeed.
