    This tiny (2 day old) black chick was sold to me with some serama and silkie as a Sumatra. From what I've seen online, this does not look like a Sumatra. Any ideas? It's smaller than a 2 day old silkie.[​IMG]

    Sumatra chicks aren't solid in color. looks like a sex link hen but only time will tell. good luck with your chicks.

    What makes you think its part silkie? I don't see a fifth toe or any leg feathering.

    i think something got lost in the translation, i read it as she got it along with some silkies and it's smaller then the silkies but i didn't see that she thought it was, just that she was told it was a Sumatra.

    Maybe it's just another serama?

    Derp, ya I never considered it could be another Sumatra! But that certainly could be! Too tiny to be a sex link, I think. Thanks for input!
