    Get a friend for it. Chickens are flock animals

    Could be a Cornish or a white leghorn. Although it has white feet.

    Out to pasture
    Cornish x - some say IF you restrict feeding - food available 12 hrs. a day- then taken away for 12 hrs. will help them live longer. Also if they can get out to free range, move around, have farther to go to a feeder - will add some time to their life as well. Legs are so thick, I would guess male. But don't quote me on that.

    Thankyou drumstick diva[​IMG] I'm going to do all I can to keep him fit and healthy ordering a house and run today but also got a big garden he can come out and explore all day. Should I start the 12 hour feeding from 3 weeks of age or now? What other types of food are good or should be avoided to keep him fit and healthy? Thank you for all your help x
