Note the little bit of white on the tip of the wing.
yes this looks almost exactly like my wee guy, no white under the chin, I have a wide range of Heinz 57 hens as to say crosses, so he'll (I say he but of course can't tell yet) will just get to run with them, he is a little sweetie the smallest of the 8 chicks who hatched this week, and likes to cuddle into my daughters neck. I have more eggs coming home from 2 other sellers so any chicks won't be related and should I get any completely black dudes next time I plan to keep them separate to get the next generation of black guys. so un usual up here, i'm sure no one will have a clue what he's ment to look like anyway so he shouldn't get a complex. got a little black silkie cross who he looks so like. so maybe they'll be good friends. the kids have named him blackie lol
