    Hello, my name's Angie. I've had almost every pet imaginable in my lifetime but I'm brand new to the world of chickens. I had ducks growing up, and thats about as close as I've been. I have been reading almost everything on this site and have gotten more information than any of the books I've been reading. I got myself quite a few chicks ... an assortment of laying hens and then one little adorable banty mix that we just had to buy at a local chicken swap because it would have been all alone if we didn't, and my father and I are suckers!! The banty was the only one that was straight run, it's a little older than all the other chicks (I think) and since its the only one of its kind I have nothing to compare it to. I took a few pics and would like to see if anyone could give a guess by looking! Thanks!

    Well, it appears to be about 3 weeks old (?), and that's an awful lot of comb for that age...I guess cockerel. Just looked again, and I think I even see a little wattle in the first pic. He's cute!
