I placed an order from Murray McMurray hatchery and they sent me a surprise chick he's about 5-6 weeks old and I am wondering what breed he is. He has brown and white down and his feathers are looking like brown and gold. He has very few and he's still very small but he's very very heavy (all muscle my buff lil roo). He has feathered legs. His skin is white. He has 4 toes. I'll post pics so you can help me figure out what he is. Thank you in advance to everyone who tries to help.

Does it have a single comb? It looks like a partridge cochin.
Are you sure about the age? He seems very underdeveloped.
Yes I'm sure. He is growing very very slowly. He arrived on 06/11 and he was extremely tiny. He is very heavy and solid. Idk what else to offer him he has feed and meal worms daily. And yes he has a single comb.

I think he's going to be a partridge cochin bantam. Just based off what he looked like when he got here and now. He looked just like the chick in this picture and his few feathers he's sprouting look like this is what he will grow up to be.

I would guess that too except that McMurray doesn't usually send bantams as extra chicks. What's the comb like?

Well this is another one of the same breed look how tiny it is. It's smaller and rounder than any other chick I've had... even my hamburg and 2 buttercup. This is him side by side with another surprise chick that arrived 2 days ago. That's him with one of my buttercups and him with my hand I have super small hands. Lol
