    I picked this chick up from TSC yesterday and dont remember what the sign said it was. It has black legs, a black beak and a tiny black single comb

    It will be impossible for us to identify what breed or sex your chicken is if you don't post a picture. : )

    Try looking up a Black Sumatra on the web to see if it is similar to your chick...there are not that many chicks that have black legs, beaks, comb common enough for a TSC to carry it...if it has a single comb, and 4 toes, it can't be a Silkie. If it has a black comb, beak and legs, it can't be an Australorp.

    EDITED TO ADD: feet color will be important as well...does it have yellow feet? or black feet too?

    Check some of the games as well, and ornamentals.

    Agree a photo would give us a much better chance of identifying it.

    Post a few more times and your account should unlock so you can upload a photo (There is a minimum before you can post photos).

    Can you call the TSC and see what breeds they have currently?

    My first guesses are an Australorp or a black Sex link. They can have dark combs and legs, especially when so small.

    It's not a silkie... does the site lock you out from pictures if you haven't posted in a while?
