    Chicks are hard enough to identify with photos... without any we're guessing in the dark. Add some clear photos showing the chick's body, feet, and head and we'll be able to help you a lot more.

    I would tentatively agree that it's a bantam based on size, but at this age it's really very difficult to tell breed.

    I think you have yourself some Red sex-links (they were probably mixed by accident with the bantams).
