I received my very first chick order on Monday and found an extra surprise in the box. The label reads "Rare Exotic Free Chick". The children have already named him/her Afro. I know this is asking a lot but any ideas what this "rare exotic chick" might be? I wanted egg layers and wondering how this little fellow will fit in.

My guess is Buff Laced Polish. Unless its all bright white, then White Polish. The coloring is hard to tell.

The heat lamp washes it out. It is yellow. Also likes the heat lamp a lot more then the Rhode Island Red's do. First day I had them Afro would be all by itself under the heat lamp.

Texasgirl, love your free chick ! Most of the time they are roos. We have our shipment coming in next week. I hope our free chick is half as cute!

TexasGirl, got our chicks in from McMurray! Thought our exotic chick was a Cochin because it had feathered feet but then I counted the toes. It had 5 toes! So I goggled and it is a Salmon Faverolle! We don't have any of this breed , I am happy with it, even if it turns out to be a boy!
