    Long story short, a neighbor's dog brought my mother two random chicken eggs! We assumed they were from our distant neighbors, since they have a bit of chickens and some escape. Out of curiousity I candled them.. and what I see inside are moving living chicks!

    I had no idea on what to do, so I kept them warm and with humidity until I could bring them to the local school which has incubators. After a while.. they hatched! They were both yellow, but to my fright the older one died after not being able to use it's legs.. :(

    I didn't let that get me down and I took the smaller one home and kept it safe, dubbing it Hazel.

    My task now is that I want to find the gender and breed of this chicken?

    It turned 6 weeks old on June 8th, and this picture may have been... the 10-11th or so?

    I can't think of much things to say, and I'll be willing to answer questions and post more pictures if needed!

    Could you get a more full picture from the side?
    It's definitely a cockerel though

    It's a rooster and It may be a Welsummer or mixed breed. He will be a very pretty rooster. ;)

    Leghorn does seem logical, but his legs are pink rather than yellow? :confused:
