    I'm going to guess it's a blue orpington. Its legs look white, and its down looks like my blue cochins did. No clue on gender - way too early to tell for that.

    Since it came from a feedstore, I'd lean away from it being a Blue Orp. I dont know of any hatcheries that carry them. Is it a bantam, or large fowl? Possibly a Blue Andalusian?

    Andalusians have dark legs from day one. Even the splash ones. This baby's legs look too light to me to be an andalusian.
