This one is the one that I'm using for my project. and here are the left over chicks that Imma riase normally. My dad bought them at Mexico so I am pretty sure that they are a fighting breed. Four were brown with stripes and the other four were yellow.

Hi,
Sorry if you've said somewhere, what project are you using that chick for? What are you selecting for if you don't know the breed?
It's fascinating to know all the things we can do with chickens, thanks.

We are testing their ability to imprint. What we are doing is all of the group members have to wear a black shirt, grey sweats, and black socks when they are with their chicks. Two to three weeks from now, we will meet up with our chicks and bring them out one by one. We will switch the caretaker of the chick and see if it will follow someone else with the same outfit.

That sounds like a fun project.  Let us know how it turns out!
