    I recently got a new chick and the people at the feed store told me that she was a Rhode Island Red, but since she has white feathers, I doubt she's full Rhode Island. She's fully feathered, but very malnourished. She small, but with some good food and water, I bet she'll grow to her right size in about a month or two. She has the same red as my two Rhode Islands, but the white throws me off. Is she a Rhode Island with a mutation gene to give her white feathers? Or is she a mix or a different breed all together?

    I'm thinking that she's a Rhode Island red mix, maybe with a game breed.

    That's what I was thinking.
