    Kind, kind, oh so wonderfully kind McMurray sent an extra chick.

    Of course, it has a toe issue and never will walk normal - I can only imagine the pain that it's in.

    I'm getting beside the point here. What breed is this chick?

    Feathered legs, I believe it looks something like a Cochin..except for the pea comb. Any idea what it is?

    Brahma and knowing hatchery extras, probably a boy.

    I hope it's not another boy.
    I didn't realize they had bantam Brahma's..?

    Yep they have bantam Brahmas. They're really cute [​IMG]
    I could be wrong on the boy part but who knows? You should post more pics in another 2-3 weeks

    I'm inclined to think it's girl - but with my standard brahma's I found them rather hard to sex under laying age. So who knows about banty's, I guess.
    And those pics were taken two weeks ago, the comb/wattles are still very un-pink. No cockish behavior or anything (I watch my chickens a lot), and it's really sweet.
    So I hope it's a girl. That would make one bantam pullet out of all the banties I ordered. *facepalm*
