    We gave our broody hen 3 fertilized eggs from a local farmer and they hatched last week. We're keeping this one. Any ideas on the breed and/or gender?
    thanks

    Does it have feathered feet?

    can you post pictures of it's feet and comb? My first inclination is to say it's a barnyard cross if it came from a farmer. But you never know, maybe he/she is a secret chicken enthusiast.

    The chick does not have feathered feet. Here's another photo of her with her adopted mama, Esmerelda, a Buff Orpington. Her feet and beak are orange.
