I got 4 SR banrams a few weeks ago, 3 at most. 3 are clearly silkies and this one I have no idea. It has stayed so small and isn't really feathering out, even though the silklies are about half feathered. Any guess as to what this little chick is?

I was totally wrong, it does have feather legs! It's so teensy I hadn't noticed!!

that would be awesome! I've never had a Cochin! It' so much smaller than the silkies, it has me a bit worried. It had a round of pasty butt, but has been clear for a week or 2.
Cochins are very good birds. :) The roosters I ended up with were overly aggressive, but my Christena, on the other hand, is precious. :D
Some chickies don't grow as quickly as others. Maybe try giving your baby a boost in protein, such as yogurt or even scrambled eggs if you add chick grit into their diet. :) Thank goodness the pasty butt has been taken care of! :wee
