    I'm really new to chickens and we recently picked up some Turken chicks. She accidentally grabbed a non-turken and gave it to us anyway because she didn't want it to be without heat for too long. Can anybody give me some information on it? I'm not sure the age and it may be too young to know anything yet. It has feathers on the legs and feet.

    I agree with the others, it looks like either a Silkie or a silkie mix of some sort.

    silkie - looks like it will be partridge colored. You know if you breed turkens (naked necks) to a silkie - you get showgirls, a variety of silkie. Check out the "Showgirl" thread
