    I thought at first she might be Barred Rock, but I don't know, she doesn't look much like the barred rock chicks I had last year and no barring on her feathers. So maybe sex link?? She's a stray chick that I picked up today and I'm just wondering if anyone knows what breed she might be. Also, how old do you think? 4/6 weeks?

    She is really sweet and friendly and yes, I know she shouldn't have corn, I need to wait until monday to get to the mill so she will survive for a day on mash, corn and grass!

    sexlink chicks don't have that much white on them. I would say either black australorp or jersey giant. they look like penguins as chicks

    Thank you! I had no idea since it was a random chick that my sister found roaming around her house. It could be a mix. Guess I'll wait a few more months and see what she turns into!

    And you might rethink calling it a she. Those are some big thick legs, I'm thinking a little rooster.
