    Can anyone help me identify what breed this chick is? I got it as a straight run bantam in the mystery bin at my local feed store. At first i thought it was a bantam buff orp, but now im not sure. It seems way too light. Its about 3 weeks old, i think. [​IMG]

    Maybe a Japanese bantam or a OEGB.

    Thanks. But to me it hold its wings too high on its back to be either of those :/ Those two breeds seem to poing their wings downward

    Also, Japanese Bantams have short legs. This little thing can stand quite tall.
