    Dear BF got the bright idea to make a home made incubator out of a coleman cooler and a friend gave us some eggs and one actually hatched!!! Its the smallest chick I've ever seen. We have no idea what it might be, maybe your guys can tell.

    It could be a bantam - was the egg tiny?
    It is really cute!

    The egg was small like a bantam egg and white, the man who gave them to us has a game bird farm, he hatches everything under the sun, phesants included. This little one is alot smaller than the day olds I got from Ideal.

    With the feathers on the legs and fuzzy cheeks it looks like a porcelain mille to me...

    Right now this one in the picture above its head looks exactly like the picture of yours that you have in your hand.

    I am curious I haven't found out what mine is either.

    Oh you know what I just clicked on your picture to get a close up and noticed its feet seem bluish green, isn't that an easter egger trait?
