    I'll be in the barn!
    seems like a Black Sex LInk to me, but the leg color seems really dark.

    I was thinking the same, but I have a Black Star, and when she was this age her comb was already very light! Heres a pic of my Black Star at 2 weeks...this newest chico was in the bantam/assorted bin so I'm puzzled! Guessing I'll just have to wait and see!

    agreed, except I'm not sure why her/his comb is so dark.

    I do see it is starting to lighten up, but still is strange...

    Was most likely placed in the wrong bin. Things like that happen a lot.

    I'm with you...maybe it's just a late bloomer. [​IMG]

    I agree! It's still so tiny compared to the other 4...I can't wait for a few weeks to go by so I can figure this all out [​IMG] Thanks for your replies though!!

    Definitely not a silkie. Not a sumatra either. My guess is its a black OEG bantam since you say its wild and much smaller.
