Early Bantam breed guesses?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Got these little guys this morning form a local mom and pop who gets them from Ideal. More pics when they are older and used to their new home.

 

 

 

Most are clean legged, the slate grey one in the middle has light feather on it's legs. The black one has a white puff on his head. All are four toed.

The black one with poof is a Polish (I believe white crested black). The slate grey may be a cochin - does it have a straight comb? You could go on Ideals website and see what type of bantams they sell for more guesses! Have fun with your little ones smile.png

It does have a straight comb. And they are "little ones"! This is my first time with bantam chicks and they are TINY compared to what I'm used to.

 

Here are some better pics.

 

#1. This is the slate grey one.

 

 

#2 Clean legs

.

 

 

#3 Clean legs. Orangish red on the face/head.

 

 

#4 Clean legs. Pure yellow.

 

#5 Clean legs.

 

 

#6. Clean legs. Smaller then the others. Wouldn't hold still.

Wow - Ideal has quite a mix of bantams:
http://www.idealpoultry.com/assortment.html

So your slate grey one could also be a porcelian d'uccle although I am leaning cochin

They only sell one polish bantam - white crested black

Pic # 3 - check out Ideals "Black tail buff dutch" They all have a little colored spot on their head likes this one

Pic #2 - sicilian buttercup

I am clueless on the rest - they could be so many different chicks. Do they all have straight combs or are there any pea or rosecombs?

They all appear to have straight combs, but I'd need a magnifying glass to be 100% sure.
