    A man just left this tiny little thing on the curb so I picked him up.
    Is it a chicken? If so what kind. It's roughly the size of a quarter. [​IMG]

    Looks like a Quail chick to me. Your image is a bit blurry but I found a picture and it is of a California Valley Quail chick.

    your location, the size, coloring, and shape of the head... I agree 110% with Birds & Eggs its a Valley Quail - definately not a chick.
