    This has me stumped. My friend found this thing in his yard and it has been staying in his garage. He has no idea what it is. I have no idea what it is. I told him my best bet would be a turkey or peacock but the blue legs is throwing me off. I think some peacocks have blue legs but I am not sure. The legs are a bluish- gray color

    Thanks

    Could it be some type of chicken? This person does not have chickens but some neighbors may

    Really? This thing has been running around his yard/ garage for over a week now. Could you please post some photos of what breed of chicken you think he looks like so I can show him?

    I looked around on google for phoenix chick pictures. I came up with this one. They look a little like yours.

    That does look a little like it. I just can't figure out why it looks so weird. I do think it looks like a chicken but does it look a little bit "off" to anyone else? I thought about it being a guinea also... I think the Phoenix is probably pretty close to being it... I just don't know what it is about it that is throwing me off. Maybe it is the neck feathers. Those are pretty weird

    Oh, and it is completely independent i think. As far I know the guy hasn't given it any food or water. It runs loose in his yard and comes in the garage every now and then.
    Would a young chicken like that be so independent?
