Mystery rescue chick help needed

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
While at my local feed store, I bought a couple new chicks to add into the flock as replacements from predators. I noticed this little guy all by himself in one of the brooders. I brought it home, and am wondering what breed it (hopefully pullet?) is.

It also has been standing by itself and dozing off, is that normal? I still catch it eating and drinking and it looks normal and caught it also eating with the other chicks.

Sorry for the long post, any help is appreciated. Also, any ideas on the feather footed blonde? I know they're both bantams.[IMG]

Do they both have feathered feet? The ones that do are most likely the following: Brahmas, Cochins, or d'Uccles. They don't seem to have puffy cheeks so you can probably cross our d'Uccles.

Thank you so much! Only the blonde in the first picture has feathered feet.

Your welcome:). It's hard to tell by the picture but the second one maybe a Silver Sebright.

Judging by pictures of sebright chicks I found on the internet, I definitely agree! I really appreciate the help:)
