    My friend found this little guy in a ditch this morning and wanted to know if it's a chicken. It looks like a chicken to me but I'm no expert. Any ideas? If it is a chicken, does anyone know what breed? (sorry not the greatest pics)

    [​IMG]No, it's a baby pheasant! Are you planning on raising it?

    I don't know anything about pheasants. I do have some chickens though, could it be raised with them?

    Can we get a better pic with some light. Looks like a Coturnix Quail to me.

    I would not raise it with your chickens at this age but you could probably feed it the same thing.
