    We got a bargan bin chick, and I knew it was special... its legs are hairier than my dad's....

    But I have no idea what it is. It's coming in white (Its pretty old by now, not grown but almost fully feathered) but has some grey in its tail and back.

    I'd just like to know what you might think she is.

    Wow.... and I thought this would be easy...

    She's an awfully pretty girl... I guess i'll have to try and get a picture.... but that'll take a week or two.

    I purchased this FBCM about 6 - 7 weeks ago. It is supposed to be female and 3 months old at the time which would make it about 4.5 months old now. I believe it is more likely to be about 2.5 - 3 months old now. Can anyone identify if it truly female?[​IMG]
