    My son adopted this "chicken" from the humane society. It was found abandoned in a parking lot in a box.

    They said it was a chicken, I thinks its a turkey. Can you help???

    Howdy & welcome to BYC!! The bird you have is a chicken. :) I'm thinking it's a hen, but I could be wrong. It's breed looks more along the lines of aseel, shamo, or malay. Hope that helps!

    x2 if it was at the humane society it was quite likely confiscated from folks that did bad things with their birds we're not allowed to talk about here.

    Sad but true Donrae. That is an interesting looking chicken you've got there. I'm sure once you get some good groceries into her she'll start looking a lot better.

    I'm guessing Shamo. Great find! :)
