Hi
This bird was dumped in the local Showgrounds, and caught by my school kids.
It has been in quarantine and has had a chance to rehab.
Does anyone have any idea what breed and sex it might be??
Sorry the photos are not great, he/she/it is not very cooperative at posing :rofl:

HE is not very good at posing, I agree. But it looks like a boy to me. Id guess he is araucana or araucana X, but could well be pure. Some sort of blue (or maybe splash ? a bit hard to see. [And I hate looking at pictures on their sides lol but they just DO that sometimes, I know. :laughing :laughing ]
