    Ok so a while ago I posted I had a naked chick problem. Well naked chick seems to be growing feathers if you want to call it that? I was wondering it almost seems like a silkie mixed with EE here are some new pictures and one old one thoughts? I am thinking the hatchery screwed up and someone got somewhere he wasnt supposed to to make this???

    Here are some of the old pics from around 6 weeks old


    Now here at almost 10 weeks

    woof! that sucker needs some feathers huh?

    it looks uncomfortable being "on the stove burner"
  3. Oh my, i'm sorry, but that is one strange looking chick. Poor little thing. i do remember you posting when you first got it. i wonder what's wrong with the little feller? It does look to be an easter egger, with those green legs. Do you do anything special for it? Does it need a heat lamp from being so naked?

    Is that the same chick that was supposed to be a frizzle?
    Well someone had a thread about why NOT to breed frizzle to frizzle- and the offspring were all naked like that. Poor little thing!

    Is that a beard that chicks face? I think Easter Egger.

    I have no idea what it is, but mercy sakes, that is the saddest little chick I ever did see. Somebody knit it a coat.

    Quote:It is the UGLIEST thing ever LOL!! So far the only thing is she is in a cage with only one other chicken. The other chicken is a double frizzle that gets picked on by everyone else. So they are buddies. On nights that it gets below 65 I put the heat lamp on them both and they snuggle.. Hopefully it looks like it is getting more down so as it warms up hopefully it has something covering its back and it can be loose and not sunburn during the summer.
