Welcome to BYC - so glad you've joined us!
To get a good ID on your chick you need to turn off the heat lamp (it won't hurt them for the time it takes to get photos) or take the chick out of the brooder and into more natural lighting to take photos. The best photos for breed ID show the whole bird including leg color and a nice shot of the comb bud.
Looks like an Ameraucana to me. Sometimes referred to as an Easter Egger. Lays Blueish Green Eggs and lots of them. Fastest chicken on your farm guaranteed and most are crazy. Haha
I see this is your third thread here on New Member Introductions. You will get the best advice by starting threads on the most relevant forum - in this case, the gender / breed thread, then you should get some feedback (in addition to that from OGM) - https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this
If you are unsure as to how start a new thread on a forum, here's a link that i hope helps
The chipmunk pattern of this chick is common to many breeds - as the cheeks, comb and legs are not visible in this photo there is no way to differentiate between the many breeds this bird might be.
I will post another picture.
I can't see anything in that photo except RED, is hides the colors of birds etc.
So looks like the beginnings of a single comb and yellow legs is that correct? There are a couple of breeds that fit what is showing at this point, as the bird matures in the next few weeks it will become more apparent which it is....but those combined with a clean face make easter egger among the least likely.
