What breed is this?

This tiny (2 day old) black chick was sold to me with some serama and silkie as a Sumatra. From what I've seen online, this does not look like a Sumatra. Any ideas? It's smaller than a 2 day old silkie.

Sumatra chicks aren't solid in color.   looks like a sex link hen but only time will tell.   good luck with your chicks.

What makes you think its part silkie? I don't see a fifth toe or any leg feathering.

i think something got lost in the translation, i read it as she got it along with some silkies and it's smaller then the silkies but i didn't see that she thought it was, just that she was told it was a Sumatra.

Maybe it's just another serama?

My animals were stolen by a family member and rehomed without my knowledge or consent. I was away for the weekend and they were supposed to be caring for them for me. I have no idea where any of them are at this point.

Derp, ya I never considered it could be another Sumatra! But that certainly could be! Too tiny to be a sex link, I think. Thanks for input!
