    I found a chick on the street by my house and have no idea what kind it is. We live on brackish water by a bird sanctuary and it has roughly 4 inch legs and a light grey body with white down on the bottom of its body. Any ideas?[​IMG][/IMG]

    Yes it is a wild bird not a chicken. This year I have already raised 3 baby birds that feel out of the nest and near death.
