    Hi everyone. I'm new to raising chicks and I am totally enjoying every second of it. I went Saturday intending on just buying 1 Silkie. Well I left with 3 chicks, a Silkie, Frizzle and the 3rd I think but not a 100% sure a Belgian. I can't remember what the guy said. I was just too excited at the moment. I had been wanting Chickens for years! He showed me one that was about a month old and I can't seem to find a similar picture online to figure out what it is. So I want to see what you all think? I named this one Cinnamon. I have no idea of it's sex either.

    Yes, Cinnamon has feathers on his/her legs and feet and this morning I noticed they are changing. It's not just baby fluff anymore. Sorry don't know the correct word for it. lol

    it could be a number of breeds such as d'uccle, brahma, or cochin...wont know for sure until its fully feathered and a bit bigger but if its a d'uccle you should know its gender by 3 weeks of age

    Thank you. The reason I selected this one or should say the guy suggested it is because it doesn't get very big. I just noticed it's getting a little comb. :)
