Could be a bantam cochin but there's a lot of yellow chicks out there. You might have to wait for it to feather in to know, unless someone smarter than me comes along.

Actually, I forgot cochins have feathered feet. Sorry I'm no help.
 
Here are some updated pics of this chick

3 weeks old now

About the same size as the silkie chicks

Yes I'm thinking along those lines too...

It looked like he had a rosecomb at first but it was just squashed over and has just stood up in the last day or two..... didnt think i would be able to tell this soon if it was a rooster or not.... or maybe he could be a she???
