    I am 99.9 % sure that this is a chicken. Turkeys are not colored this way.

    It is not easy since that is a back view but it looks like a chicken because it looks like it is holding its breast and neck straight up. Plus it seems to have the shorter neck.

      I forgot to mention above that I enlarged the photo to get a closer look.

    The image is small, but I would say chicken-- possibly a Bantam rooster, by the coloring. Did you see it in person, or only in the photo? Turkeys don't have feathers on the neck or head.

      I agree. looks like a bantam rooser, but may be a small hen.

    I agree with the others, I'm pretty sure it's a chicken, it doesn't even really look like a baby. It's not a great shot though.

    I have 16 "girls" (hens) and it sure looks like a young chicken to me!

    From what I can see, it's a chicken.  It's difficult to see if it's a rooster or not; my vote would be it's a chicken.

    Definitely a chicken - I have a friend who breeds that type though he appears to be a rooster.

    I believe it's a chicken.  Turkeys are darker.  I'm attempting to post a picture that I captured of turkeys a couple of years ago in the wilderness.

    Chicken, gotta be a chicken. Turkeys much darker.

    Here's a better close up of the bird, and each and every single one of you wonderful hubbers were correct with your answer of chicken. Where were all of you great people when I was arguing with the two idiots at work who said it was a turkey?
