For the person that asked, sorry I can't remember whom, turquoise isn't a breed, it's a chick that has had dye injected into the developing embryo. And to the person that thought it was illegal, apparently it isn't, the hatcheries are still doing it. To the person that thought I'd raise one lone chick and put it into a run, with full grown chickens so it could be pecked to death, there's no way I could do that. Sorry CF, I didn't use it for fishing bait. I wanted to let it grow a little then offer it's feathers to someone for tying lures and changed my mind on that. I went to the feed store the next day and bought a little buff orphington to keep it company. I needed two more chickens like I needed another hole in the head but it just might work out. The buff orphington pullet will fit into the present crowd pretty well. I already have 3 buff orphington pullets and 1 cockerel. I really like that breed of chicken. So far the head count on the chickens is 30 and I don't know what I'm going to do when the young batch of 11 (4 Australorps, 4 Buff Orphingtons, 3 Ameraucanans and these 2 get grown. I'm still trying to plan on how to get some turkeys on the place. :help: Anyway, the little guy/gal, although not really wanted showed up on my doorstep, it will have a place here until I find out if it's a rooster or and hen, or a banty or full sized. If it's a banty rooster, guess what Jan Doling?... You're it for the new chicken mamma! That's right... if I find out where you live I'm going to bring it to you. Kind of a make up present for not being able to get Charlie the brave banty rooster to you. Just in case it's a banty rooster and Jan isn't interested, maybe someone else in east central Florida would like to have him. All I know is according to Ideal's website, their Easter chicks are light colored roosters. The little one is getting white feathers with some black on it's wings, not black barring but white feathers with black on the lower 2/3rd of the feathers. My computer took a dive so I can't post pictures at this time. Hopefully later.
