    This little one was in the bantam bin, it is the same size as my silkies of the same age, 3 weeks. It's stance is different than the others. Wings are white with colored tips and rose comb.

    The way its legs look and stand, reminds me a lot of cornish chickens.

    This chick is a bantam, do Cornish come in bantam? Any other ideas?

    Yep, they do [​IMG]. And i can see why Mary of Exeter would say that, but at the same time i think the lil guy is just to young to tell. They're few breeds that i believe can be accurately identified at such a young age (silkies, turkens, polish, etc.). Then again, im no expert lol. I think he/she has beautiful coloring and I'm excited to see the results!

    You say it has a rose comb...so a Wyandotte of some coloration perhaps?

    I don't have any of those, looked at feathersite and I hope your right. He's starting to look a little rooish and they are very pretty roos. [​IMG]

    Madison is now 7 weeks old. is the same size as my bantam cochin and silkies, the other roos(one silkie, one japanese, and one mystery) are crowing Madison is not. madison also likes to cuddle with the other roos who never cuddle together without a girls between them. Comb color fluctuates with stress or excitement. Roo or not? *edited to add-really big feet.
