    Hi, I found this bird in the backyard of our rental property in a residential neighborhood. I assumed out was an escaped juvenile chick. I brought it home and built a small coop for it, but when I went to the feed store to buy it a friend, I discovered it looks nothing like the other chicks. It has a smaller head and beak and plumage that chicks not much smaller didn't have. It scratches and pecks like a chicken, though. I'll post a pic after I read how.

    Okay, so I'm a new member and can't post pics yet. It is about the size of a dove, but buff colored and has no tail. Any ideas? I've Googled images of all sorts of birds and nothing really seems to fit...

    Keep posting on other BYC topics and it won't be long before you can post pictures. I'm interested in knowing what your bird looks like!

    Whatever this is, out prefers a ground nest rather than the box I made it.
