    Looks like a little Japanese Bantam! Probably the mottled variety. Couldn't say what gender it is though. Maybe in a couple weeks show us a picture! Either way looks like he/she is going to be a gorgeous bird! Nice find if it turns out to be Jap.[​IMG] Tell you daughter good job! XD

    So, I finally got ahold of the person who have it to her. It is a Mottled Orpington Bantam.

    Still not sure on the gender.

    I'm thinking that it is a cockerel. It see wattles and they seem to be turning pink.
    What do you think?


    On a side note, this guy loves to be held. I love it.

    What a sweetie! I thought those legs looked a little thick. XD It does look like little peep might turn out to be a rooster.:(
    But then again only time will tell. Can you keep a rooster?
