    Could be a Welsummer, but I'm not 100% on that so don't hold me to it! [​IMG]
    Sorry for your loss by the way.

    Sorry to hear of your loss. I'm not sure what breed. Do you realize that was a cockerel? I'm thinking the neighbors in an apartment would have an issue with that. I also think lack of sunlight could have a part in the youngster not making it. They need a certain amount of sunlight to be healthy. Chickens actually sun bathe daily.

    hmm. i dont think its a brown leghorn. some people said it may be a rhode island red. does anyone else have any suggestions or can point me to some pictures that may help?

    it died right in my hands. i didnt know what to do. its head was jerking back and forth and blood dripped out of his mouth. after he died i looked in his mouth and there was blood filling up his throat. idk what happened. it was scary/sad.
