Name that Bantam

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Wondering if anyone could help identify these little guys. I'm fairly certain #3 is an OEG but any ideas on his coloring? Had a silver duckwing before but this guy seems to have a little more yellow to his coloring than my last one did. Thanks!

#2 looks like a D'uccle or similar, probably a Mille fluer. #3, the oegb could be a spangled or a BBR! <3 I have a baby one currently to ^^

#1 looks like a brahma or cochin, brahma would be a dark brahma and if cochin it would probably be a partridge of some sort <3

thanks CascadiaRiver!

 

I am really new to this. From browsing pics online I was guessing #1 might be a cochin of some sort, #2 brahma, and #3 OEG.

I agree that #2 is a Mille Fleur.

UPDATE!

Have some new pics on these little chicks. Any more opinions now that they're a bit older? #3 the OEGB is getting some white spots. Would this be spangled/crele?  Folks mentioned #2 was a Mille Fleur. I don't see any spotting, just black strips on the wings. Is #1 still looking like dark brahma or partridge cochin? Should I be able to distinguish male vs female prior to any cockadoodle-dooing? :)

All 3 together

Seeing as its a straight comb I'd call #1 a Partridge cochin, and I can't quite confirm anything on #2 but I can say that your little oegb is a Spangled! :3

Thanks! I'm no expert, but my best guess was all pullets as well. That would be great since these were the 'pet' chickens for the kids. I'd hate to have somebody give up their favorite. My 3 year old is in love with that OEGB.
