    We went to pick out some chicks at tsc and my son wanted the tiniest chick in the bantam bin... it looked so tiny compared to the rest. Any ideas of what it could be? Pics soon..

    So here's a photo for size comparison, the largest chick is sultan bantam I bought a week earlier.

    The dark medium size one is a bantam silkie I bought the same day from the same bin as the mystery chick...

    The small one is the mystery chick...

    Hope the larger chicks don't bully the smallest one. Since it's a banty they will much bigger than him/her. I would think the tiny one needs to be 6 weeks or more before it can be sexed.

    The largest chick is 5 days older than the others. But she is the friendliest and It's super docile, she's the most pleasant bird to handle

    . The silkies (2) are a day older than the smallest and they mostly keep to themselves.

    They're all bantams. I bought them from the same bantam bin at tractor supply.

    I'm actually surprised to say that that tiny chick is a little bully.

    It constantly tries to pick fights with the silkies but it treats my sultan like a mother hen and stays under her feet constantly.
