    What breed is this chick, I'm thinking possible Japanese Bantam but I'm unsure.

    Too young to tell.
    Could be one of a dozen breeds.

    Agreed. If it came from a hatchery then statistically Old English Game is the most likely. But like @The Moonshiner stated, it far to early to say for sure. Post pics in a few more weeks.

    I don't think its a Japanese bantam.
    When I raised them by that age their tail feathers were sticking straight up and usually wings were already dropped down.
    I'm with @Gray Farms if had to take a shot in the dark I'd guess OEGB.

    It's a little hard to tell at this age. Post pics of the whole body and comb at six weeks. Then we can tell the gender and the breed.

    The breed is clearly “whiteish and adorable”!
