    I know when I went to get my chicks there were chicks of various ages and she could be smaller simply because she is younger.
    Yes you need to go back and try again. [​IMG]

    I actually think Batman might be OLDER than the RIR (Peppercorn, pictured here) based purely on feather development. She's the first one to start putting out tail feathers of the whole group, and her wings are almost totally feathered now with primaries.

    Here is my chick. It looks a little lighter because of the flash. I think that's why it looks a little yellow in the first picture when it really doesn't have any yellow on it.

    Yup! Your chick looks almost exactly like mine! I bet they're the same breed, whatever it is!

    @Mattsculpt I may have an answer! I talked to someone at TSC who seemed to know her stuff, and she said they're supposed to be a Japanese breed, but didn't have an exact breed name either. She did say they're definitely NOT cochins.

    Any better ideas than Japanese Bantam?
