    I did a little searching and the Calranch website states that they get their chicks from Dunlap Hatchery. If you go to their website and look at their bantams, they only have 14 different bantam varieties with feathered feet. Therefore, I am thinking that your chick is a white cochin, even though it seems to have inherited a vaulted skull from somewhere in its bloodline. That is, unless you ended up with a mixed breed somehow.

    I am curious to know what kind of comb it has because it is possible that it could be a Sultan with missing fifth-toes but that breed isn't listed on Dunlap Hatchery's website. Sultan's have a V-shaped comb.

    Obviously not a developed comb, but can you tell what type by that?
