it is as Tiny as a golf ball compared to the other chicks that I got the exact same day
its a bantam something.
It is a bantam. Basically a miniature chicken.
Post again in several weeks and we might be able to tell gender and exact breed.
It reminds me of an easter egger bantam, but it could be something else. There are many breeds with the chipmunk pattern, easter egger being the most common. You will be able to tell for sure what it is in a couple of weeks.
How old is it?
What a cutie! But I agree with @The Golden Egg5; there are many breeds that have those markings as chicks, so it's hard to say which breed at this point, but I will guess it's some sort of Old English Bantam.
I'd like to see legs and comb, (and make sure that your chick doesn't have a muff or beard) but my current guess is Old English Game Bantam, as Better than Rubies said.
They're autosexing, so if I am right, that bird's a pullet.
Oh, cool! I didn't know that. =D
In case anyone's curious about this: Males have smaller eyestripes and are less likely to have really dark lining on the headstripes. Below is a pretty good example of a male.
Of course, it varies a little bit with different colours (you can't color-sex a white OEGB!) but with the duckwing/partridge varieties, it's pretty reliable.
Sorry for hi-jacking your thread, OP. Hope you enjoy the information.
Looks like a B.B. Red Old English Game Bantam that I got last year from orschelns.
