    i was told the first one was a BB red oegb when i bought them. (i have no idea what that means) the second was supposed to be a EEO bantam but I'm starting to think it looks like a silver duckwing oegb. Maybe, cause i really have no idea what I'm talking about when it comes to these little things. I was thinking maybe the third could be a rir bantam but it really doesn't look like my Lf chicks at that age.

    #2 looks like a pea comb but when i try to get a good look she freaks out. She does not like to be touched. But im pretty sure its a pea, cant really see the three ridges cause of her size.

    She is supposed to be an EE, at least that's what i asked for. The other two were mystery. i picked the most red/rusty one in the group. Then picked the smallest one. At first i was wondering if the had mixed a quail in with the group.
