    Hmmmmmmmm.....could be a Serama. Since the wings are so long. But they usually have a distinct stance, with the tail held in a very upright position. Usually by the time the wing feathers are this long they can be seen standing in the traditional Serama stance.

    If this one does it and was just not cooperating for the camera, can you try and get a picture of it and post it?

    It is a cute little thing. Did you incubate and hatch it?

    Here are a few more pictures? I did hatch this one. It cam in a mixed batch of frizzle eggs, I know she has seramas but she can't remember if she put any of those eggs in there? It is smaller than all my other bantams and its wings kinda point down at the ends? Is a pretty calm little chick? [​IMG]

    how old is your little one? my seramas at two weeks have little tails that are already sticking straight up.. even when they are just running, walking or playing around.

    Short legs, Downward slanted wings, It looks like my Serama babies. I think it's a Serama.

    That chick at that age it too big to be a serama, IMHO. It may be a mixed breed chick. My serama chicks with full wings and tails already in are about 1/2 the size of your chick.

    Quote:Thanks for posting the other pictures, too.

    I agree with High Roost Ranch that it is very likely a serama mix, it was hard to tell the size in the first pictures.

    If it has any of the Serama personality it will be a delight.

    Maybe the size is deciving in this picture? This baby is the same size as my days old silkies, I even put this one in with them and I have to look to find it in the sea of dark silkie chicks?

    Thanks to everyone for predictions!

    Quote:I agree with High Roost - just from my experience at a week old I am able to still hold 3 or 4 in my hand at the same time - this chick looks a little large - but he/she is a cutie that is for sure...
