    Since your chick is the "classic chick" color and look he/she could be multiple different breeds. Being a bantam is going to lower the options a bit. It's not a silkie I can tell you that as silkies have feathered shanks and feet and walnut combs. Possibly a Japanese or EE bantam?

    I checked the wings again and im starting doubt my own thing about the silkie part They are normal, but in this light they look a bit fuzzy. I hope that it is not another EE, already have two large fowl ones. I got it from an assorted bantam bin, along with two other chicks, which have been identified, one is a cochin and the other is a black austrolorp

    I would look into the Japanese bantam breed especially if he/she has a single comb.

    Not a silkie due to wrong comb, and skin color. Not to mention those naked legs.

    Going to have to wait a while on this one. Being clean legged narrows down the possibility's some but its hard to say for sure at this age.

    I know. I think its possibly a Modern Game Bantam because the legs are so long and it stands with its chest a little more upright than the others.

    Hallo! If they do have longer legs than what “normal” chicks usually have, and they are for sure Bantams, they might possibly be Modern Game Bantams! You might look them up as chicks, and see if any look the same.
