    Hi there! I've got one little bantam chick still unidentified out of the group I got from TSC. I have looked at SO many pictures of bantam chicks from different hatcheries! This chick is black with a bit of brown just around its eyes and across it's beak. It has either a rosecomb or peacomb and dark legs with yellow bottoms. Thanks for any guesses! :)

    He's too young to tell at the moment. I'd post pics of him in a few more weeks and then we should be able to tell easier. [​IMG]

    I'll do that...if the suspense doesn't kill me first! Lol :) It was the only one of its kind in the bin, that's why I picked it. All I can figure is that it has off coloring or maybe it's an EE.

    I'm leaning towards it being a Black Wyandotte.

    Probably a Black Wyandotte, but could be a Black Rosecomb, too.

    I looked those up and they have white on them (the chicks I mean). And yellow legs.This one is just black except for the brown around eyes and the legs are only yellow on the bottom. A helpful person told me three ridges is a pea comb, so I think I'm down to it being an EE.Which is perfectly fine, I love EE's :)
