Can anyone tell me what kind of Bantam baby I got?

    I don't know much; just that it's not a Silkie. Also my little Bantam baby is fighting sleep which is cute. Is this normal for Bantam babies or a personality quirk? IMG_20180404_113809.jpg

    Being a baby is tiring work. They sleep a lot! Just make sure it's eating and drinking fine and not actually lethargic/weak. Droopy wings and not moving much would be bad. It looks perky enough in the picture, but if you are worried you can add some electrolytes to the water! Hope that helps, best of luck with your baby.

    My Bantam baby is eating and drinking... He or she has been pretty perky, but seem to be getting sleepy. However he or she seems to be fight sleep like a normal human baby would. I've never seen a chick do this before. Otherwise he or she seems to be doing fine. No being lethargic, weakness, droopy; just seems to want to stay awake.
