    This chick hatched this morning. I had to help it out, but I don't think that had anything to do with its appearance. I just think it's so funny looking. Its eyes are smaller than normal and it has so much face fuzz. It's a RIR x Red Star cross, so not bearded. I think it's cute as all get out.
    Anyone ever have a chick look like this?

    Are you sure about the mama and papa breeds? That sure looks like a fluffy face muffed baby. [​IMG] Very cute!

    The eggs came from a lady who had Rhode Island Red Roosters and RIR and Red Star Hens, no other breeds in the pen.
