    Hello all.
    I am new to chicken farming (LOL).
    I was actually going to get a few chickens this spring. Instead, I got my first chicken today.

    It's a 19-day old three-legged, four-footed chicken house chicken.
    I saved it from being culled since it would have been shuffled around and (most likely) died anyway from being crammed in with 40,000 others.

    This guy won't end up at Bojangles!

    No idea if it is a male or female. It has the extra extremities AND a splayed leg.
    Legs (the working ones) are taped together, and it is immobilized. Food and water very close by. Doggie pee-pee pad is there to catch the poop and keep chick clean.

    We have named the chick Doramusutikku Senpai.
    Translated from Japanese, it means Upper-Class Drumstick. :)

    Maybe I should have named it Bojangels?

    Hello :frow and Welcome To BYC! I.......want to see a picture of this chicken? But ... If you have rescued a meat bird, and want to keep it as a pet, they are special needs birds even at the best of times because of their growth rate etc and need to be carefully fed to keep them as healthy as they can be.
