What breed and sex is it? It almost doesn’t even sound like a chick...has more of a bird chirp.

    its a chicken... it looks like a jersey giant or australorp.. too young to sex.. does it have food and water? try giving it some electrolites or nutria-drench.. could you give it some plain scrambled egg and fresh greens? is something wrong with its neck?

    In agreement with the above. :) If the foot bottoms are pink, it's an Australorp. Yellow would equal Jersey Giant.

    So far, nothing's screaming cockerel. :D

    Thank you! No I don’t believe anything is wrong with it’s neck...why do you ask? It has some yellow/white feathers on the underside of its neck. We have some food and water out there for it right now, and a heat lamp. We will go and get some electrolytes and greens tomorrow.

    Yay! That’s good news! Thank you! I think I remember noticing the bottoms of the feet being yellow, but I need to go double check.

    Yeah it’s the strangest thing! He doesn’t know any neighbors who have chickens...just so random! But she will be a welcomed addition to our brood!

    Looks to be about 6 weeks old, like someone stated it could be jersey giant but it could be a hatchery australorp with yellow feet or just a black barnyard mix.
