    Picked up a six-pack at Tractor Supply--two ducks, two pullets, and two grab-bag bantams. I specifically asked for two white silkies, but the associate grabbed this teeny-tiny squirt the size of a pack of fancy-ketchup instead--I'm not disappointed, he's a cutie! Feathers are coming in a hot mess but not a frizzle so far.

    Going off the amount of feathering on the feet and legs, I was assuming this was a cochin bantam.

    Too dark to be a white, too light to be a blue or black. Was thinking blue-splash or very light blue? Any ideas on colors?

    I know it's hard to tell with it being so young.

    Does it have puffy cheeks? if so it might be a d'uccle, if not then I think either a Brahma or Cochin.

    Not that I can tell yet. I didn't even think of Brahma. Thank you!

    My guess would be a Porcelain D'Uccle.

    After looking at about 5.8 billion D'Uccle chicks on Backyard Chicken today, I'm thinking you're probably right. It's so itty-bitty.

    And on top of it, missing two claws on each foot. But I guess that's not specific to any one breed--just kind of a random thing.

    Thankies!
