    New to BYC and to keeping chickens. Four weeks ago, I purchased 10 one day old bantams (4 cochin, 3 seabrights, and 3 silkies). The guy at the feed store threw in an extra chick. I have no idea what breed it is. Anyone know? Also, I know it's early, but does anyone have any guesses as to what sex it is? Thanks!

    I agree with keesmom. It's a Silver Spangled Hamburg cockerel.

    That's a bummer :( I was really hoping this one was a pullet. I'll be posting pictures of the others in a few weeks because I'll need help identifying their sex. Unfortunately, my city doesn't allow roosters.
