    I have a hen I rescued. She came with another chick that died from injuries from a fall. Anyways, I have had her for a couple weeks thinking she was a chick. However, she has not grown in two weeks and still eats and drinks well. She looks just like my full grown Production Red laying hens when she stands up. This chick is very friendly. What kind is she. She is all white and fits in my hand like the size of a soft ball. I have been trying to upload pics but it won't let me.

    She looks like she might be sick...does she have any bloody poop or anything?
    You can try giving her a mash of boiled eggs, sugar water, chick starter and yogurt (plain). That should help her grow more.

    We'll need better photos for breed ID. Profile shots of the bird standing naturally, including legs and comb, and then a comb shot are the best.

    X2 on the sickness. Her eye and face really don't look so good. I hope she is just sleeping in this pic. :)

    She was sick but doing a lot better since this picture. I had her on antibiotics. I will post more picks later tonight.

    Could be a White plymouth rock/leghorn. What was she sick from?

    I think she had a respiratory infection. She seems to be doing better.

    I just noticed that she seems to have one brown feather on her back? She's probably a mix then....
