    I was at a local feed store today and almost bought these chicks because they were just TOO adorable!:love Unfortunately someone beat me to it. :hit

    But I was wondering if ya'll could help me find out what breed they are, so maybe I can get some from a local(ish) hatchery? They were in the assorted bantam box.

    WOW! That has a funky looking pattern, which unfortunately I've never seen before. When you find out what they are let me know! Do you know if it was in the bantam bin? Or what comb type it has?

    I agree, very cute and interesting color!

    I am guessing the comb is not a single comb.. because I think a single comb edge would be visible in that one good face shot.

    Did you take note of the kind of comb? That would help with guesses.

    Unfortunately as I was looking at them someone walked up with an attendant to take them, so I didn’t catch a good glimpse of the comb. (I was too busy trying to chase the bugger for a picture. :gig)
    And it definitely was a bantam! It was in the bantam bin and the same size as the others.

    Super cute... bugging me that I don't know what they are..

    after some looking I found Golden Campine and Sicilian Buttercup.

    Both of those are small standard breeds (not bantams) but they were the only breeds that I found that had speckled chicks. :confused:

    I however just could not find a good complete list. The best that I found was on the Meyer Hatchery website, and they don't carry many bantams.

    They are chickens - Possibly mottled cochins, or some other mottled breed. They are gorgeous. I wish you had asked the salesperson what breed they were.
