    That chick is so cute.
    It could be a bantam since you said it is smaller than the rest. maybe a cochin or silkie. Looks more like a cochin though.
    My last exotic chick from McMurray was a blue laced wyandotte ROOSTER. He got eaten though within a year that I had him.[​IMG]
    But I didn't know what he was till he got older

    Probably a Blue Cochin. They are big and gentle, and the hens tend to be broody. But they are not great layers.
