    [​IMG]This is Valentine, the only chick to survive his/her hatch. An acquaintance of mine was going to cull him/her, but softie that I am, I said I'd raise her (okay, let's just be hopeful here and say "her" ;-) ). The person who handed her off to me said she had no clue what breed or mix she is because they have lots of chickens all running around tigether. But I'm wondering whether any of you experts can tell me whether she resembles any particular breed at this point. Here are some pix.

    At least one barred parent, and too young to tell gender.
