Not actually "Old English Bantams" ?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Around a month ago I bought five baby chicks from a feed store. I was told they were all Old English Bantams, and the two larger ones were just a bit older. They told me they'd give me one for free if I bought all five because they were "trying to get rid of them." tongue.png



Here's their baby pics! Cute huh? smile.png They all looked quite similar, especially to a less-experienced chicken enthusiast like me.

Now that they're older, though, I'm pretty sure the big ones are not actually Old English Bantams. I feel pretty stupid.



Here are the ones who I'm unsure about. These ladies are twice the size of the others, and I believe the silver one might be an Egyptian Fayoumi? I love her but she beats up the other chicks. Not sure what the gold-colored girl is but my aunt told me she may be a Buttercup.


Then there's this spotted gal...



These last two I am more sure are Old English Bantams.

I feel quite silly for not being sure of the breed when I bought them! sad.png

I'm a teen with 25 beautiful chickens and a Wonderful and Almighty God!!! I also have three cats, one fish and four budgies. 

Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, the way a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were unwilling. Matthew 23:37
