Hey everyone! This little one was found in a group of pullets that I picked up from a feed mill promotion where you get so many free chicks per bag of feed bought. She has 4 legs! Two are normal and functional and the other two are small and just sort of hang out by her butt. I was asked if there was a thread to follow her progress so I thought I'd start one :) Thanks to the suggestion from @fisherlady, her name is now Ripley!

Does she have a twin that was mostly absorbed in the egg?. She appears to have a hump on her back. I would love to see an xray.
I have no idea but an x-ray would be really cool to see!

Is she able to poo okay, or does it just get caught in the extra legs?
Yep, she poos just fine. She pooped on DD's friend earlier today lol
