I've been wondering about Jo every since she was a young thing... I have never been able to figure out what kind of chicken she is, although I had assumed she was a pullet as that's how she was sold to me. A friend here on BYC told me I had a rooster, and yet, he was still one of the strangest chicks she'd ever seen, from his irregular feathering down to his mis-matched legs. My friend posted some photos on the Gender/Breed section and a tentative consensus has been formed that I may have a chimera on my hands. I've been taking photos of my entire flock every couple weeks to document their growth... these are from Jo's photoshoots. 3 weeks old: 5 weeks old: 7 weeks old: 9 weeks old (current photos): I've found her development pretty fascinating and thought this might be a good place to share her story and get some feedback. What do you think? Do I have a chimera on my hands? Edited to add: Here is the initial thread that got this all started. Thanks, Amy!
