Looks like a Production red or a Rhode island red.
I would say production red or other hybrid red of some sort.
I was leaning towards the production red.
That is what I was thinking but I have some and this is a strange chick. It is growing fast and it is fully feathered except for the head. It still has chick down on head and neck.
It has quite the upright tail too. You may have a cockerel. If all the chicks are the same age, check leg size of chick in question. Males will have thicker, stronger legs. It could also be that the breed of that chick grows much faster than the others you have. Difficult to tell with out knowing age.
Well I appreciate all who commented. Although the picture does not show all the features, I found out today it is a Turken (Naked Neck) chick. Hopefully its a pullet and it appears to be. Rescued it from being tossed away by the previous owner. Why do people do such things! Upsets me so much for some people to treat such animals that way. Its name is now "Butterball". Welcome on the Hudson Farm!
Well that's just awesome! Good for her and good for you, the rescuer! Thankfully, with someone like that, there was someone like you, to make it right! Go Butterball!
Thanks! My wife sometimes gets frustrated at me but she realizes it's all for the better good. She named "Butterball" and it has become her on personal project!
Thank heavens Butterball found you and your caring wife to have a now forever home.
