    Friends found it as a yellow fluffy chick, but as it feathers out, it doesn't look like any chicken I've ever had.

    I'm loading my own pics to get a better comparison...but I'm thinking guinea fowl.

    It has a different face than mine though...lol.

    Loading my pics (to my own computer) but I just noticed the funky wattles. Guinea fowl...but older than my keets.
    Probably why it looks a bit different...mine haven't got to that stage yet...lol.

    Your guinea is quite a bit older than mine. Beautiful aren't they?
    (And wild...lol)
    Mine don't like me at ALL. [​IMG] I was lucky to get this pic.

    Thank you all. The mystery may be solved! We will continue to watch it, but we agree that it LOOKS
    like a white guinea.
