    Oh My! My neighbor just brought me a chick that her friend found in her backyard! [​IMG] I'm happy to have the chick though! [​IMG] My guess is that it's a week old. It's a pretty grey color with yellow blotches--any idea what type it could be? It's kinda skinny, but not too bad. My Broody is raising turkey chicks right now but their about 3 or 4 weeks old. Do you think if I waited till evening when she goes into the nest, I could possibly sneak this chick in too? I worry about this chick being lonely, so if this doesn't work I'll run over to the feed store and pick it up some friends. [​IMG]

    The spots are actually more yellow than they appear in the pictures, but here she is. Any thoughts on what breed?

    Sounds like a good plan to me. How did a chick end up in your neighbor's yard?! [​IMG] That's not something you hear of every day.

    Can't wait for the pictures, she sounds beautiful [​IMG]

    I put the chick in with the rest and it seemed way to easy! I just put her underneath my silkie, Alice, and Alice just fluffed up and is sitting on her. Is this normal? Could it be that Alice didn't notice I put another baby under her?
    I also was wondering if this is safe--will the poults pick on the new chick?
    Thanks
