    This is a 3 week old mystery chick from My Pet Chicken. She came substituted for one of the Silkies I ordered, pretty sure she's not a silkie :) Hope it's a 'she'.

    I forgot to mention the chick is on the small side. Much smaller than the Barred Rocks so I'm thinking another bantam breed. If that helps...

    Well, it looks a bit like and Easter Egger to me. Could you post a closer picture of its comb? And, what color is its legs? They look green or bluish, but I'm not sure.
     
  4. Maybe an Easter Egger but they aren't bantams if he/she is a bantam.

    Looks like an EE. Could be an EE bantam.

    Hopefully you can see in the pictures, but the comb is basically non-existant at this point. flat. some of the others have small combs forming but this one really doesn't have anything yet.

    Here's some updated photos of my mystery chick. she's now 6 weeks old and has developed a distinct white collar of feathers. Still think she's an easter egger?? She's still smaller than the barred rock chicks of the same age.
