    I will get pics tomorrow, but my neighbor brought me 2 chicks that she got for her daughters at the feed store. They just wanted to keep them for a week (they aren't farmers or really pet people) and play with them, then pass them to us. They had no idea what they got. Well the one is a BR pullet, and I was quite sure the other was an old english game bantam. Now that it's a few weeks old though, it looks exactly like a tiny bald eagle! Anyone have a chick like that before??

    My salmon faverelle roo is colored much like a bald eagle. Can you even get those at feed stores though? they have feathered legs and an extra toe, if that's what you got.

    He's grown now. His name is still "Eagle Boy" because of his coloring

    Quote:Cool looking Roo. For two years now several different feed stores have been carrying Faverolles. I picked one up this spring for fun and she is a spaz. Her coloring is atypical with a blackish tinted beard:
