    I got this chick today and it's a beauty but what breed is this? All I know is that it's a bantam.

    Not a silkie cross; they have black skin, crests, and five toes. [EDT: Also, feathered legs] Black skin and five toes are mostly dominant; crests are dominant. Feathered legs are pretty dominant. This little guy has none of those characteristics.

    Does he have a single comb or is it flat? I can't see from the picture.

    You can’t be 100% sure on what breed it is till they begin to develop feathers

    Where did you get this bird from? Hatchery, TSC, or from someone's backyard flock?

    I agree with Brahma240 that you won't know for sure what it is until it is older and feathered out. But if I were to guess, I'd say maybe Old English game bantam.

    My best guess is a Cornish chick.
