A friend gave us this chick, he said withevery 50 meat chickens they give a exoitc one and it was so much small than meats he gave it to me. sure is a pretty bird. 1st picture looks messed up as a small wild dog got ahold of him almost riped the wing right off, poor thing will never be "right again", but plan on keeping it. (wild pup was taken in town to the no kill pound, too meny people dump there unwanted pets out here, it wasn't his fault just hungry . Anyway .... Hen or Roo? and what kind of chick is it?? very friendly, comes right to you to sit in your hand. about 3 monthes old.
