What breed?

So my husband found this chick at the gas station last night and brought it home. Any ideas what breed it is? She has to be about 6-8 weeks old I'm guessing. I'm new chickens!

Your sentence started off pretty funny. I'm not sure if I would be happy about my husband picking up a chick at a gas station late at night. :-) If you could post a pic of the chick, then I'm sure you'll get a lot of responses.

Looks older than 6 to 8 weeks to me,    as a full grown chicken.   It looks to be a RIR,   or as often referred to as a production red when from hatchery stock.   Possibly a mix.. 


I'm helping you out. LOL LOL

@cavemanrich thank you. How old do you think it is? And it's hen right?

If it did not crow yet, then it is likely to be a hen.     Hard to tell the age of a chicken unless one inspects it closely.   Looking at the feet of young chickens there is a difference, to that of older  chickens.    Hard to  tell  if a chicken is 3 or  8 years old. :idunno

Here is a pix of one that is currently 10.  She looked the same at 2 years of age. 

If they get good nutrition they look good into THEIR GOLDEN YEARS.
