    We got a new chick last night. That looks almost identical to one of our other ones. Only difference is it's smaller and has feathers on its feet. It's supposedly the same age as our other two birds. [​IMG]

    Thanks for the replies! I was thinking that it was a Gamefowl cross because of how much it looks like one of our other chicks. All three of our chicks are approximately 5-6 weeks old. But this one looks to be about half the size of the other two. I will post a pic of both birds to show the similarities.The new chick is having a rough time with the other two, they have been pecking at him every chance they get. So it stays on top of the coop when they are outside of it. Another difference between the two is the new one has feathers on its legs near its feet, the other one does not.

    Looks like some sort of gamebird cross.
