    So we have this new addition to our flock and I don't know what he/she is. Any ideas would be great. She has feathered feet also. Is she to young to sex too? Also how do I introduced her to my older girls. They seem to pick on her now.

    Looks like a possible Cochin, to young to sex (try again around 6 weeks). How old are your hens? Here is an article on introducing your chickens:Adding New Chickens to Your Flock.

    Are its legs really as short as in the pictures?
    Possibly a serama mix

    darling little chick, and to whomever dumped it, hope they get fire ants up the nose. What a mean thing to do. Serama's don't have feathered feet. Please don't toss it in with established flock, they may pick it to pieces. Try the "look but, don't touch" method.
