    I found her about 3 weeks ago and at that time she must have been about 3-4 days old Im guessing.
    She is small compared to other pics I have been viewing of chicks about her age and of course the feathers flip up rather than laying down.
    These pics were taken a few days ago and she must be about 4 weeks old at least.

    Feathers flipping like that could mean she/he is frizzled I think it what they call it, this one is tough What color are the legs? If they are greenish could be Easter Egger or Americauna(spelling?)

    HI, thank you for your response. The legs are gray, no green. Is she small for her age? Maybe a bantam?
    She seems so small relative to other pics of chicks her age. I figure a she since I have read that lots of feather prior to sign of comb or waddle is indicative of a female. True? Also, she is extremely skiddish. Even afraid of the snail I put out for her to try and eat!

    Frizzled Black Austrolorp, very neat! But, "she" may be a "he".

    I will be pleased with whatever he or she. I was just reading so much and it said that lots of feathers prior to sign of comb or waddle is indicative of female. Also, the skiddishness exhibited especially when approached from overhead.
