Got a bunch to identify!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

So we were surprised another feed store--- ended up coming home with a bunch of chicklets again. Man--- only one month in and I'm already hooked.

 

These baby pullets were all in a box that had about 15 different breeds listed.... maybe more. No one knew what was what, and now I'm a little confused as well! I have 2 that I need some help identifying breed.

 

I also have 1 bantam who I am still hung up about on gender.

 

 

So!

 

Anyone have any idea what this little girl is? We've named her gimpy because she tore a ligament in her wing the first night home. She's been slinged up for a couple of days now. But she's quite happy. NO clue on white sort of chicken she is though. Any ideas? (She isn't a bantam--- too big.) Someone said theres a chance she could be a Wyandotte. Does that seem legitimate?

 

 

 

(Shes the one in the box with the stripes on her back)

 

 

Next one! This cutie is a little brown one

 

 

 

Now the last one is one of our older Bantams. I know nothing about bantams. Logic tells me this is a rooster--- however, compared to my other rooster of the same age, this chicken is a CUPCAKE. Does everything a hen would do. I know some females do tend to have little tiny combs but I wasn't sure if this was an exception.

 

 


Any ideas anyone?

#2 possibly an Easter Egger

#3 It maybe a Red Breasted Old English Game, could you get a better photo?

Thanks for the opinion! I really hope you're right about some of these,

 

The third is an Old English Game Bantam. I'm actually trying to figure out what gender it is--- should I still go grab more photos?

First chick is a Gold Laced Wyandotte and the bantam is probably a BB Red Game Bantam "either a Old English, American, or Dutch". It could also be a Phoenix Bantam also.  The other chick I doesn't look familiar to me.

Hmm, how old is it?

About 5 weeks. :) The other bantams I got on the same day look like this, I'm pretty sure they are all the same age.

 

The photos here include the brown bantam in question, but he's a bit blurry.

 

 

(blonde chick isnt a bantam-- she's an Isa Brown)

From your first picture I'm leaning towards cockerel but it is to young to say for sure.
