    I know it's probably too early to tell, but I'm curious as to what kind of bantams we got yesterday at TSC.
    I wasn't planning on getting any, but then chicken math happened.

    This is Little Jo. It's a tiny little chick (even compared to the rest of the bantams at the store) but pretty spunky.

    The kids call this one Twitchy.

    Here they are together.

    In doing my research earlier today, it seems like it's probably too early to tell but I thought it might be worth a shot. I'll post more pictures as they grow.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated as I'm a Bantam noob.
    Thanks.

    I'm not sure about Little Joe but I think Twitchy maybe an Easter Egger.

    Here's some updated pictures of Little Jo. I apologize for the poor quality, but he/she wouldn't stay still

    Any thoughts on breed?

    Here's an updated picture of Twitchy. I'm assuming the thought is still that this one is an Easter Egger? There's what looks like a "beard" and some sort of "puff" on top of its head.

    Little joe maybe a mixed breed.

    Thanks. I thought it might have been a Blue Andalusian, but they have a single comb and Jo has what looks like a rose comb.

    Thoughts on Twitchy's puff on the top of it's head? Is it also some sort of mixed breed? Maybe with Polish or Silkie in there somewhere?

    I didn't realize before he had a crest, I think it is a Polish mix most likely.
