    I bought 4 pullet Orpingtons and 4 straight-run bantams from Tractor Supply. I took these pictures yesterday, and they were 5 weeks old on Monday. Any idea what the smaller ones are (breed/sex)?




    In the above picture the third and fourth chicks are a couple of the pullet Orpingtons.

    The white one with a red comb looks like a rooster.

    The first two pics I"m thinking are porcelain d'uccles

    the next pic, I don't know what the first two birds are. The one in the middle is an Orpington, the red one is a production red.

    The last pic, the bird on the end looks like probably an old English game, and a pullet. I have no idea what the white bird, with the funky kind of rose looking comb and grey legs is.
