Any clue as to what these two little guys are?

    I know they are too young to tell the gender yet, but maybe the breed? They were just listed as "assorted bantams" at the local feed store. The little brown one looks like a chickadee bird
    They are about 2 weeks old now

    One in the middle is suppose to be a Silkie, and the same age as the two little guys

    Thanks in advance for the input

    from the first picture from left to right maybe sebright and the other one maybe OEGB or dutch. They are too young and not known breed makes it 99.9% guess on sex, but If the one on the right is duckwing or BBR old english then I would guess that one is a pullet.

    Agreed one the silver one looks like a sebright and the other an OEG.

    mississippifarmboy collects slightly damaged strays

    I think the dark one (On the right of the first picture ) might be a campine. Looks like ours did at that age.

    What would BBR stand for?

    I am not normally a bantam "collector" but these were just really too cute to pass up

    BBR stands for B.B. Red or Black Breasted Red

    At that age, BBR and Silver Duckwing OEGB (or even a Fawn Silver Duckwing) chicks look a lot a like. The other is definitely a Silver Sebright.

    Quote:Ditto on the Sebright.

    The weird looking chick though is indeed duckwing based (like BBR) but has something else in it too. . . neat looking whatever the color is. It is an Old English Game Bantam though.

    I Think The One On The Left Is A Silver Sebright.

    Hope You Find What Your Looking For!!!
