    Hi guys thanks so much for your reply.imcouldnt delete this post.its a baby chicken with thick short legs I thought it was a male leghorn because itmlookedmlike my other two leghorns except this one has short thick legs.and it's very big for its age.got it from my friend who's niece rescued it from a poultry.did my research and found out its not a leghorn it's a broiler.which are used by poultices for meat only.so nw I really don't know if it's a male or female.it lays around a lot and eats lying down which broiler chickens do because their weight is to heavy for their legs.also read they die in a few months because their hearts can't take the weight.im sorry for any inconvience.i didn't want t give it away for it to be eaten.but if anyone is still interested in it you could have it.if not I was going to keep it comfortable and care for it until its little life gives up.
     
  5. I will take him! NO DEATH! I've never slaughtered a bird nor will I ever. I like " Special " birds. I actually have several " Special " chickens. She sounds like a handicapped cutie! Let me know if you could ship this little one! I would love him/her!

    Aww really?wow I feelso touched awww.its not handicapped he or she does walk but because of its breed it's weight makes it hard for it to move around a lot.its adorable doesn't require a lot of work.ive never shipped a chick before afraid it would die.where are you from?plus some of its feather had fallen out but starting to grow in.read up in broiler chickens first and I'll have to see how much it'll cost to ship it.thanks for your note rest and response
