    I'm a total newbee to the Chicken world. Except when it comes to eating eggs and chicken! [​IMG]
    Can you experts out there tell me what he/she is? Funny story, I live in a motor home traveling to dog shows and visiting with friends. Anyhow while at a flying J truck stop rest area, walking my dogs, I saw this chicken. It had no feathers except around it's neck. When i got done walking the dogs, I went out with a piece of bread. This chicken came running up to me. I kept breaking off tiny pieces of bread and when i got done with half of the slice, the chicken turned around and I grabbed it!
    To keep this post a little short (Hahaha!) It now lives and travels in a dog crate and a pen that I set up outside with a cover and a couple of tarps. Eats like a pig and has grown beautiful feathers.
    The closest picture I could find looks like a Partridge Rock? It's a very quiet chicken.
    It's gotten heavy, big, has 4 toes, Legs and feet are very yellow. And it blushes when I talk to it! Eats out of my hand and my friends hands. Eats everything! And a lot! [​IMG]

    Now that I look at it's pictures and comparing it to other pictures, it looks like a hen.
    I'm sure y'all will be able to tell me for sure!

    Thanks

    Sorry the pictures aren't better, I took them with my cell phone! [​IMG]

    The feathers are really rich in color. Very pretty brown.

    I've named it "Chicken J". LOL! Chicken J has put on some weight, must weigh around 8lbs. or more.

    I figured this chicken came off one of those big transport chicken trucks. What do you think?

    Thanks for the speedy reply!

    Thanks! I just found some good pictures of the GLW and that is exactly what Chicken J looks like! How great!
    Do you think CJ is a Rooster or a hen? How old would you guess?

    Yes! I would really love to know CJ's story! [​IMG]

    I think she's a hen even though she has big wattles & comb. Look after her well-with all that gold on her, she should be treasured [​IMG]
