Mis-sold 'Ayam' eggs-but what breed is this little chick?

    We have hatched a couple of batches of Ayam chicks and thought we'd buy some eggs from a different breeder to keep the mixes healthy. Unfortunately part way through incubation we had a power cut, and this little chicky is the only one hatched from 6 eggs. Clearly NOT an Ayam-can anyone help to identify it? Definitely a keeper whatever it is!!

    Likely a crossbred of some type. Far to young to tell what breed/breeds it is. Post some 5-6 week old pics and may be able to determine if at least if its a pure bred.

    Ask the seller, they're the ones that are going to have the best idea.
