    This little guy (or girl, idk) was found in a cardboard box at the park, abandoned, and was given to me. It was just a peep a few weeks ago, not sure of the age but its growing so fast and so fluffy rather quickly. It is also very friendly and docile, I'm guessing he's been held a lot.
    I am new to chickens (this is my first post!) and would love to know what I have. Thanks!

    I would guess a cochin rooster since it has a single comb, yellow legs and feathered shanks.

    Thanks everyone, do you think he will be a full size or a batam?
    I just love him, he's so soft and sweet.

    It's really too early to tell. It's a wait and see kind of thing. He looks kind of big but without knowing the age it's all a guessing game.
