I wondered if you could help me work out which breed this little bantam chick is? I was think citron dutch but not sure,...

I do know it's not an Ancona because 1) not the same colour as the other three chicks and different tail too 2) the egg was different colour too.
If they don't keep their breeds separate, but allow them to crossbreed, she could be anything really. Lovely new hybrid breed!
So I sent her some better pictures of Peckford later on when there were more feathers, but no reply. I have asked again in case she'd not seen my message, no still nothing. I am not sure how she keeps them to be fair... But on the website, there's no mention of crossbreeds for the hatching eggs they sell.
The lack of replies is why I am now asking the question on here and in the Backyard chicken forum.
In a way I am glad I am doing this anyway because I have already learnt so much more thanks to all you lovely members of this great forum and the BYC forum
So whatever Peckford ends up being, I'll deffo be better informed about our goods friends chickens (and quails)
