I bought the "hatchery surprise" from Cackle Hatchery mid April, wound up with 50 chicks, 2 turkeys, and 1 duck. Turkeys didn't make it, duck seems happy enough to flock up with the chickens, I gave half the chicks to my neighbor and kept half. Nice looking assortment anyway but this one little fella is really odd. He/she has no feathers on his back or top of the wings and a big feather that sticks out from its thigh. Is this an actual breed or some sort of freak? The funny looking one by the duck. As you can see everyone else feathered out fully a week or so ago.
