    This chick was rescued from a cat. It is about 1/3 smaller than my 11 week old Barred Rocks. Is it a Frizzle Silkie Bantam? Male/Female?

    Thanks. I will see if I can get a pic of the comb in the morning. It was a lucky chicken to be saved from a cat attack. Wasn't Christmas dinner.

    Well, I got a good look at this little thing. Its comb is gone and about half of the neck feathers. It sure is a feisty little thing. Not scared of the BR's at all.
