    This little cutie hatched 4 days ago. When he (or she) came out of his shell I noticed his black & white beak. After he fluffed up I saw his fuzzy legs. He reminded me of a little penguin. Sadly he passed away today. You can tell he doesn't look too good in these photos. He slept all the time.
    I was wondering what type of breed he is? I'd love to get more chicks like him.

    here he is asleep in my hand.

    He hatched out of a brown egg.

    I agree with Cowgirl71, looks like a Black Cochin.
