    Hi everyone, we just added a feathered family member via my daughter's preschool project of the life-cycle of a chick. We are one of the 5 lucky families who took one home. [​IMG]

    I am hoping we have a hen b/c if it's a rooster, we'll have to give him away to someone with a farm (we live in a neighborhood not into wildlife). [​IMG]

    Anyway, here's a pic I took last week, she's 4 weeks old:

    She has since been moved to the yard in a makeshift coop I guess you could call it lol...

    If anyone could tell me if this is a girl as we are hoping and thinking and what breed, we'd really appreciate it! TY in advance for your help!

    I"m sorry, I have no idea what she is, but she's quite pretty. Good luck with your new pet.

    I think she looks like a girl and she's so cute. I also think you should get a couple more so she has company! [​IMG]
