    So... this little thing came to us from a family whose very young son had been given a chick and they had NO idea how to take care of it. I really didn't think she was going to make it...
    [​IMG] <- A week or so old.

    This is what he/she looks like now, at about 4 months old:



    I was thinking that it has some of the coloring/feathering of a Black Copper Marans, but I really don't know..

    I can get more pictures if needed. Thanks!

    I am thinking some type of game chicken. It's a rooster too.
