    Nemo, my little one dollar-one winged wonder, is starting to get feathers!! Thought I would post a few pics and see if anyone has any idea yet what s/he might be mixed with besides Silkie. At 18 days old s/he's not much bigger than the week old standard chicks s/he's growing up with.

    Little Nemo has attitude!

    Nemo is just adorable and lucky to have been rescued by someone who will take such good care of him.

    s/he is mixed with cuteness....Silkie and cuteness is my guess. Sorry, I am no help. But that is sure a lucky chicken to have been found by you!

    Aww thanks!

    I am so glad I bid on him without thinking. I shudder to think what some farmer would have done with him after seeing his deformity.

    I keep calling him a he for some reason, maybe its the name lol Even if he turns out to be a roo, he will have a forever home here! The neighbors will just have to complain lol.

    Anyone have Light Brahma Bantams? Wondering if maybe that could be what Nemo partially is?

    But both of those are feathered footed breeds...Nemo has no feathers down his legs from what I can tell....Maybe a Silver laced WyandotteXSilkie mix??? ? She/he is a cutie!!
