    Yes, a bantam is a miniature chicken - some are regular bantams, i.e. a miniaturization of an existing standard sized breed, and some are true bantams, i.e. having no standard sized counterpart. They are typically 1/3 to 1/4 the size of a standard chicken. And I agree, too young to tell
    breed, although the pea comb will help narrow it down one s/he's old enough to get a better look.

    Not sure the breed--if you post in another month or so, it would be easier to tell.
