    My daughter found this little cutie in the front yard (we live in the city), very strange, I asked our close neibors if it was theirs and they all said no. I have 3 pullets and a coop for them so I don't mind keeping it if it is a pullet too, since I'm already set up for her. I think it is a pullet and an easter egger. I am not sure since I am new to having chickens. Any help would be great. When we founderstand the chick it was not hurt and it took us a good 30 min to catch it, I was afraid it would die if we didn't get it as I live on a busy street. [​IMG]

    Way to young to know sex, looks like a young Gamefowl.

    Easter egger is a pretty good guess, with that coloring and the willow green legs. Looks like maybe a pea comb, also?

    Too early to be sure on gender, though. Looks maybe 4ish weeks old. Post again in 2-3 weeks, should have a good idea of gender then.

    I agree, and the bird is lacking a beard and muffs so it could not be an EE

    There have been tons of clean faced EE on this board the last few years---pretty blue or green eggs, not a beard or muff in sight.

    Looks like an EE. Glad you found it before something else did. I had an EE that laid the most beautiful sky blue eggs, no beard or muff at all.
