Cat brought me a present! Any ideas on breed?

So cute! Kind of hard to say what it might be at this age- can you post update pictures in a couple weeks?
Have you checked carefully for wounds? Especially under the wings- cats can sometimes get a claw or bite puncture in there, and cat wounds fester very easily. I used to do bird rehabilitation, and we always had to be super thorough about cat cases. I'm glad kitty brought it to you, but he may have scratched the little one while carrying it.
It's decided you are flock and/or Mamma Hen!
The larger chick to the right in the group photos is the one I don't know the breed of. I showed the 1st pictures I had posted to the gal at the feed store and she thought maybe it is a golden sexlink. But I thought maybe it could be a red bantam? I'm only going off of google image searches. I'm also guessing female. I welcome ALL guesses! I'll keep posting as it changes. The head is a lighter yellow, wings and tail feathers are brown, but the color is darker on the back between the wings. It doesn't have any darker striping like I have seen in some breeds. Maybe it's just a mutt chicken?
