    So my sweet buff Orpington "Big Bonnie" went broody this summer and since my friend is the 4H Poultry Chair she "ran" the poultry barn at our county fair. She snagged me 5 eggs from pair cages and I stuck them under my sweet Bonnie. Two of the eggs were infertile and 3 were fertile. They hatched on Friday (8/26) but I have no clue what they are. They are darn cute though! The brown striped baby is a bantam and the little buff colored chick is a bantam. None of them have furry feet (Although I know 2 of the 5 eggs came from Brahma cages -- because I desperately want a pair of Buff Brahmas). I can't even tell you what color the eggs were because my husband disposed of the eggs before I knew who came from what. They are all purebred since they were laid at the fair by show pairs.

    Here are the pics and THANKS for any help you can give.

    Adorable chicks! Thanks for sharing. I can't help you with what kind, but you might get some responses if you repost under "What breed or gender is this?"

    The little buff bantam with the black stripe could be a Buff Black-Tail Japanese.

    My best guess on the striped bantam is some kind of OEGB - maybe BBR, silver or gold duckwing?

    What kind of comb does the white one have - looks like a pea or rose comb? Maybe a splash wyandotte - could have come from a blue pair...
