    Hello, everyone! I was wondering if anyone could take a swing at identifying or confirming what our little chick that we have affectionately taken to calling "Baby" until we can figure out if it's a rooster or hen, although I have developed a habit of calling it a she haha!

    She was in with a mix of chicks and we were told she was a bantam, and shes exceptionally small for sure despite being at least 2-3 weeks old(I actually have another forum question posted to try and figure out why she doesn't seem like she's growing). Her legs are a blackish gray and not feathered at all.

    Thank you in advance for any and all help! :) **If needed I can post other photos**

    In my opinion it look's like a silkie, but I could be wrong.

    Not a silkie, no leg feathers and her wing feathers look solid. I had a game bantam that looked similar. Can you get more pics?

    P.S. Welcome to BYC!
