4 week old Ideal bantams

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Gender or breed suggestions? We thought this one was a mottled Cochin and a male. But there's still no comb, and it's chest feathers are coming in pure white. 4 toes. And yellow, feathered feet. We're stumped. Also, no hint of a comb yet. Slowest to feather. Stands tall.




This one has to be a oegb or a Dutch, right? No idea about the coloring. Feathers have a tinge of orange and a white strip at the bottom of each. 4 toes, light gray non-feathered feet. It's the calmest, and is the only one of the 4 that doesn't play chest bumps. It feathered in really fast compared to the one above, and the Silkie, but it's the only one with a comb. There's another oegb(or Dutch) that is still comb-less but has the same feathering rate/length. (Posted below)



Self blue oegb? And that has to be a hen, right? She's my favorite. Very calm. She's the most adventurous, and explores everything first and is the first to try anything new and she actually likes being held and will one up to me.

First one is a light brahma, other three are OEG. Crele, BB Red, Self Blue

The pics above the self blue are actually the same bird. It looks like more than one type to me too though smile.png Female creole or female bb red colors look plausible. Especially crele. Guess I'll have to wait a bit longer to see. That comb seems so big already though.

And I think you're right about the brahma. It has a straight line of black and white feathers running down the length of its back, and the entire wing so far so it threw me. If everything else comes in white, then that will definitely make sense.
