    This little guy came as an extra. Any ideas of breed? It is about 5 days old. I am fairly sure it is LF as it is same size as the cream legbar chick, bigger than the polish bantam.[​IMG]
    From the breeders website my guesses are silver laced wyandotte, exchequer leghorn, barred rock or black copper marans (note quite light coloured legs though)
    Any ideas?

    It would be a barred rock if it has a white spot on top of its head. A wyandotte would have a flat to the head comb and the marans and leghorn would have a single comb. Being that you are in the UK do all of the black copper marans have feathered shanks? If so this is not a marans.
