    I am new to this, but it looks just like my black Australorps did as chicks.

    I am not sure why that struck me as so funny, but he/she does look a little emu-ish. I think he/she is adorable, but I also have no clue.

    It's funny that you would say emu. The lady that rescued her said she thought she had a baby ostrich. We have emus and rheas at the sanctuary and the eggs are giant (bigger than softballs). The emu eggs are the most beautiful deep teal color. I'm hoping she is a she. I would like to add her to my girls at home. We'll see.
