    ANY IDEA on what kind of bird this is??? We found this chick near our coop about 10 days ago...our chickens were chasing him away. Have no idea what it is. Any help would be appreciated. Very friendly, smart bird that LOVES to watch people. Happy as can be in the house in a brooder as long as people are around. LOL We have Rhode Island Reds and Guinea Hens. Doesn't look to be a hybrid mix of them and I collect the eggs daily so I can't imagine any eggs were incubated without me knowing.
