    [​IMG]Someone gave me this chick and they didn't know anything about it. I'm assuming it's 5-6 weeks old since it was an Easter gift for their kids. [​IMG]Buff Orpington pullet ? Any thoughts ?[​IMG]

    There were 4 others, but they died. I don't think they put them under a lamp. They were all lighter than this one.
