Mystery Bantam from Ideal

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hey, y'all,

 

I got the 25 Bantam Assortment special from Ideal today and most of the chicks I figured out were Cochins and d'uccles...but this one stumps me, due to color.  They HAD told me a couple weeks ago that they were currently hatching mainly cochins, d'uccles, silkies and OEGB.  Could it be a funky color of OEGB?  Any other ideas?  I looked up all the breeds of bantams they hatched and that's the only thing that I could think of....pale yellowish (closer to white) with distinct black dots (maybe 3-4) on his back.  Yellow legs.  No extra toes, nor feather shanks.

Ideal has a million different OEGB colors (about 60, actually). I have a few chicks I suspect are OEGB from Ideal (I ordered 10 assorted bantams, they sent me 14 and 15 packing peanuts), but I have absolutely no idea on color, as there are a few each that have similar colored babies. You'll pretty much just have to wait until the color comes in.

 

For anyone else throwing out guesses, there aren't many other breeds it can be. Ideal only has these other breeds for bantams:

 

Sultan

Brahma

Cochin

D'uccle

Silkie

EE

Black Rosecomb

Black Sumatra

Buff Orp

Single Comb Nankin

RIR

Sicilian Buttercup

WCB Polish

Single Comb White Leghorn

WFB Spanish

Cornish

D'anver

Dutch

Japanese

Modern

(OEGB)

Sebright

Wyandotte

Rose Comb Nankin

My animals were stolen by a family member and rehomed without my knowledge or consent. I was away for the weekend and they were supposed to be caring for them for me. I have no idea where any of them are at this point.

Looks like single comb, so far.

With that list...and knowing it has light yellow legs, single comb, no leg feathers, no muffs, no head crests, not a Cornish body, and a couple of black dots, I would guess OEGB if it is the same size as the others, ie, not really tiny. With that base and the black dots, if really small, it might be a mottled Japanese (but the dots don't look quite right).

 

So my guess OEGB, but time will tell.
