    I believe it's a little roo- and his legs are quite long, he is also skittish.

    I was thinking that he might be a leghorn? Brown or silver?? Does anyone have any ideas:)

    Is it the same chick? It is to young to sex but we maybe be able to get an idea on the breed. Where did you get it? In the second picture it looks like it has greenish/slated legs, does it?

    Yes the legs are green and it is the same chick in each photo. There is only one chick because it was given to me by a friend. He got it with his order of meat birds as the mystery chick from Murray McMurray.

    It seems very lean, not unhealthy skinny, but not heavy like an orpington:)
    Thankyou!!!

    I don't think it is a Leghorn because they only have yellow legs (hence the question [​IMG]).

    I was wondering if you would like to keep us updated as it grows?
