I would guess black sex link, not sure what you mean by black broiler
Black sexlink,their always skinny and fragile,but I wpuld defiantly wait if there are no reddish/gold feathers pop up.Sexlinks,red or black,are sometimes sold as broilers or pan fru.I absloutly dont know why,that is how I ended up with sexlinks anyway,incidents.
Black sex links are far from skinny and fragile. Ours have always thrived and have been medium-heavy weight. The females high producers of large brown eggs. I can see red or black sex link males put in a hatchery lot of pan fry cockerels. However they are quite different from red and black broilers. Those are selectively bred, slower growing meat birds ready for processing around 12-14 weeks of age.
The OP was wondering if this chick is a black Minorca. Hard to say at the moment. Minorcas will be lighter in build than black sex links, similar to a Leghorn. Black sex links will be similar in build to the heavier breeds such as Rocks and Orpingtons. Unless they are much larger than your other chicks then I would doubt they are broilers.
I am talking about as chicks.They tend to be small and skinny.
