    I've already decided 'She' is going to be my crazy little pet chicken. She is from Privett Hatchery and was in a ST Run Hatchery choice bantam box. She already has tiny little primaries growing in :) I've named her Puffin.

    She's completely snow white, no yellow tint what so ever, 4 toes, no leg feathers, pale pinkish yellow beak, legs and toes and weirdest of all...... fluffy beak....

    I don't know what kind if chick she is- I looked at Privetts Website and my best guess would be Americana or Deleware . Whatever she is she sure is a cutie!

    Me and the poor kid at the feed store (hes my chicken guru) couldn't figure it out for anything! I think 'she' has imprinted on me. She flips out when I put her down and snuggles.

    She looks like a white old english game bantam to my but that is just going by me looking at it. I have had them before and they looked just like that. It is one good looking bird. :)

    Some do and some stay the some most white chickens start out as a yellow or a off white coloring as chicks. And with the gender of the chick if u can take a pic of one of the wings with it spread out. I could sex it for u.

    The wrong side lol... there is another way you can do it but it is only about 65% correct. It is to pick it up like you would a kitten by the back of the nick and if the legs point down it is a female and if they draw up under the chick thin it is a male.
