    I have never raised chickens before...or touched one for that matter that wasn't ready to cook, anyway. I found this sweet bird on the side of the road located in the non-poultry district of town late at night. I wanna raise her & adopt some sisters to keep her company. Could someone please help me identify the breed, age, etc.?[​IMG]

    either a white rock, or some sort of factory meat bird, looks like a pullet, so a hen under one year of age

    Yeah, I think she fell off a chicken truck. Pilgrim's Pride is in the next town over. She hasn't laid eggs yet. If she is a meat bird, when do we process her?

    I guess all her feathers are in. She has no bald spots if that's what you mean.

    What they mean by all the feathers are in is that it doesn't have baby chick down feathers anymore, that full feathers have replaced the down
