    I'm thinking it could be a self blue booted or a d'uccle but I am new the chicken world and am just going by what I searched online. I have no idea how to tell if it's bearded or not and so forth. Any help would be greatly appreciated as it is driving me crazy to know what he/she is going to look like...I'll try to get better pics this evening. He/she is also tiny cpmpaired to my red and wyndotte chicks.

    for size comparison...one of my reds (which was a featured breed I bought at Tractor Supply Co. and not exactly sure which breed it is either, though I am think Rhode Island Red) and the bantam.

    Hugo, Ok
    How many toes does it have? If there are 5 toes you might have a blue silkie. If there are just 4 I am thinking maybe a blue cochin.

    Silkie have blue/greyish skin, feet and beaks. They have 5 toes, crests, and can be bearded or non-bearded.

    It's very cute!

    Your chick looks like it has a single comb and a beard/muffs. From what I can see of its feet, it looks to have 4 toes and fairly heavy leg feathering. Based on these factors, I would guess that you have a lovely self blue D'Uccle. I LOVE D'Uccles, particularly the blues!!!! :-D

    Thank you. That's what I'm thinking as well. Only has 4 toes and flesh colored skin from what I can see. I took some better pictures this evening but can't post them until the morning. So, hopefully in the morning it will be easier to tell. :lol:

    Wow So very glad I saw this thread! When I ordered my sultan chicks I got one of these (apparently they messed up). I have been trying to figure out what it was! Thanks! Mine looks just like this!
