    I bought this chick from a “rare breed straight run” bin at my local farm store. As a baby chick, it was smaller built but I don’t believe it’s a bantam. It was yellow with black stripes down it’s back. Now, it’s white with brown and black on its wings. Very light tan colored legs. Yellow/orange beak color. Any guesses on gender and more importantly, breed?

    Too young yet. Post pictures again when it's closer to 8-10 weeks.

    Find out what hatchery the feed store uses--that will narrow down the rare breeds that they sell

    It is too early to say for sure but right now there are no definite signs of rooster.
