    Can anyone tell what kind of bantam this black chicken is? He or she is about 7 weeks old. I have two of them and their tails look larger than my regular chickens and kind of point upwards and their wings look long and point down.

    Can you post a photo that shows the comb better?

    is the comb a red color or black, my guess is sumatra or other black colored game bird, but a better pic could help us determine breed.

    That is another odd thing about them, so far they do not even show the beginnings of their combs yet.

    I will try to get a better picture. They are so skiddish that I can't get real close to them.

    do you think maybe even a pea comb, because they are slow to develop and sometimes look nonexistent for the first few weeks to a couple months in some of my birds, my roo didn't grow his comb very much at all until he was almost 3 mo. it was red but tiny

    It came from Tractor Supply. They had them labeled as only Bantams. This is a pic of when I first got them.

    That could very well be the case.

    I promise you, there is a comb, you just might not recognize it. Picture please? Can't help until I've got all the pieces of the puzzle.
