    Hi. First time post. I've been lurking for a while and was wondering if someone could help. I ordered my first meaties this year and got this little guy as a freebie(McMurrey). I waited to post untill it got some color in. It s only nine weeks old and VERY tame. My neighbors call it my parachicken because it always flies up on my shoulder and rides around the yard. I'm thinking it is a game chicken? Maybe a roo? Anybody know?

    Could be a Silver Penciled Rock or Silver Leghorn

    Edited to add: that it is definately a Roo

    I don't think that I could get rid of it. It stays out with my cx's during the day. My kids named it Carly, but I think that it is now just Carl. My Buff Orps wont let him in the club. Thanks for the welcome.

    He looks like some type of game.

    Looks like a possible game, But theres a bit too much feather around the leg area.. maybe a cross?.

    Can you get a full body shot of him standing on the ground?
