    We bought 7 sexed pullets that were hatched April 27. We're suspecting the Plymouth Barred Rock may not be a Chloe, but a Charlie. There's nothing definitive yet, no larger or red comb.... but she/he's feathering in more slowly than the other 6, and we just have a "feeling". It's an adorable chick, but we cannot have a rooster here, so we're looking for a good home for this baby.

    All of our chicks are hand-raised in our home with lots of human contact. Although we feed 100% organic after about 6 weeks, this chick is still on medicated starter and was vaccinated against Mareks. She/he is very healthy and adorable.

    This baby should go to a home with other like-aged chicks. (3-6 weeks??)

    We live in Cumberland, Maine. I'd be willing to drive and meet you (within reason) for the right home. I don't want this baby ending up in the stew pot [​IMG]

    P.S. I won't hold anyone to their 1 cent bid..... I couldn't put a zero into the buy/sell format, sorry: the chick IS free...

    Do you have a picture?

    I have BR about the same age - 6 weeks. I may be interested.

    Here you go.
    All the other chicks from the same hatch date (presumed pullets) have much, much longer tails and wings, and more feathering everywhere...
