    So I got this little guy from the bantam bin at Tractor Supply. They had a silkie in there and I needed one more to make a half dozen (you can't buy less than 6) so I asked the girl to grab another bantam, just so my silkie would have a little buddy. Silkie didn't make it, TSC said they lost most of that batch but this little guy/girl is still going strong. I just can't figure out what she is. Does anybody have any ideas as to breed? I thought Cochin at first but I've never had those and from what I've seen online it looks like they have feathered legs right from the start. [​IMG]

    Not a Cochin, possibly a bantam game.

    I'd like to know what the chick is myself. What a gorgeous little thing!

    If it's really a Silver Sebright I will be thrilled!

    Five weeks old now. Im pretty excited to have a Sebright. I thought it was a pullet until this past week, but from what I've seen the females have little to no comb so I'm thinking this is gonna be a roo. [​IMG]

    That comb is pretty pink already.

    I know. I skimmed thru the Sebright thread on here and the general consensus seems to be that the roos are mean little buttheads, so that sucks. This thing almost died on me every day for a week. I babied it. My kids named it. If it turns out to be a jerk-male or female-I'm gonna be really disappointed!
