    Any guesses as to what breed this may be? I work at a vets office and well a chicken happened to cross the road!! Craziest thing ever!! My boyfriend thought it mightve been trying to escape its fate as sweet and sour chicken from The Crazy Buffet thats across the street!! haha

    Agree that's an Easter egger cockerel.

    He may be young to crow, but honestly he doesn't look all that healthy. Not just the scraggly feathers, but the comb is pale and he looks kind of hunched. Crowing is an assertive, dominant type behavior. An ill bird isn't likely to crow and draw attention to himself.

    Thanks! I know he doesnt look well...No idea where the chicken came from since the clinic is in town....not sure if it got dumped or ran away like maybe miles....Two concerned citizens even called to let us know it was running around and one receptionist went and caught it...
