    I have googled so many times my head is spinning. I got this chick as a baby for mothers day (this past May) it was supposedly 8 weeks old and i also got a pet duck. They sell them as pets at the local flea market. I know my duck is a Peking but what is my chicken? And can you tell me if its a full or mixed breed? (note the orange on the tail tip is NOT natural, i was painting my shed and i suppose it wanted to look fancy and backed its booty up to collect some color).[​IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    The chick looks like a Silkie from this pic. And current pics to confirm? Also... Pekin not Peking on your duck. One is a duck breed, one is a duck dish.

    So i posted cureent pics in replies. (4 i believe) it has the craziest feathers ive ever seen but its also the softest thing iver ever pet. Has very few feathers on the legs right above the feet. Very social since the begining and will sit on your shoulder, also sits on my back railing and knocks its beak on the door for me to come out when its bored and then it will sit with me and cluck while i pet it. I love the chicken but its just driving me crazy that i have no idea what it is. That and the fact that everyone whosees its crazy feathers calls it an ugly wild chicken.
