    That looks a lot like some of my black sex link chicks that are about 5 weeks. It would help if I could see the top of the head (the comb area) to make a better comparison.

    It's probably some other breed but it does remind me of my chicks. The legs are more yellow on yours though. However, mine to have legs that are a black/yellow combo. I have a few that have two black toes and one yellow toe in the middle.

    YUP, SORRY CJ the head got chopped in the photo. Just looked and realized I don't have one with a good head shot of one. I have about three of these but this one is really showing the colors None of them have much of a comb developed yet but I will try to get a good photo of one.
    Photographing chicks is difficult at best! I have YET to teach one the SIT and STAY commands! [​IMG] [​IMG] They just won't listen to me!

    I vote for black sex-link, and if that's the case then it's most certainly a girl. The boys have barred feathers.

    Its not a sex link.
    It looks rumpless, although still young, but it does have yellow legs... hmmm
    So I say Araucana or Easter Egger, probably EE.
