I answered a local neighborhood post about a chick found loose in the airport cargo area (all domestic cargo, so I'm thinking it escaped from a legit hatchery box). Either way, I'm now raising a single mystery chick. Any guesses on the breed?

Black with a small light bib on the neck and a bit of a lighter patch on the underside. Small, maybe not bantu size, but small than the day old chicks I usually have. Clean, dark legs and feet. Likes to stand pretty erect.

The picture where it looks dead is how it came to me. Freezing cold and pretty lifeless. A lot of TLC and we're up eating, drinking and pooping like a champ. My best guess... maybe a black sexlink?20200213_075814.jpg20200213_122158.jpg

Looks like one of the the EE chicks we just got. She's smaller than the other 3 at the same age, but not a bantam
