    So I my little boy picked this chick out of a variety of colored chicks. We have no idea what it is and are wondering how we can find out. Is there any way to tell the breed as of now or do we have to wait to see what it grows up to look like? I have been looking at different pictures of chicks, and a couple different breeds look the same as far as chicks go. We love our little chick; it is the most affectionate little thing. I have noticed that after jumping into my hand it will start preening its feathers. It only does this while being held and not when standing alone. Is this something I should worry about?

    looks like my Smores and Teeny I think someone on here said they were Old English Game Birds, Teeny was like that when he was little i say he because of the very red comb and waddles that have appeared over the last week he's 7 weeks old now and Smores doesn't because s/he has had hiney issues and tries to get out of my hand i can't blame her/him
