    Can anyone tell me what kind of chick this is? I got it at the feed store and the person selling to me didn't know what it is. Just charged me $1.60 for it. Thanks for your help!!!

    Looks like it might be one of those poofy-headed chickens! With the top-hat. Sorry, I don't know the technical term (Polish?) but it sure is cute!

    Looking at those legs, I would say that it is a Silver Laced Polish rooster [​IMG]

    I think the chick is a Spitzhauben/Appenzeller. The shape of the comb or lack of a defined comb and the size and shape of the crest are what I am basing my guess on.
