    i got some assorted bantams at Tractor Supply Co. and I don’t have any idea who these guys might grow into. Anyone have an educated guess? Thanks :) 50EEDF53-DA4C-47FB-8983-2BAB5992EDAF.jpeg F0E109C0-94F5-4EA3-98A3-69982EC1057A.jpeg 48A97FB1-7232-430F-BAD5-4C1AF6A135C5.jpeg 0DB9C2D3-9C9D-4C04-8CEF-6BB3BFF86014.jpeg 94C932C1-ABB9-4AE6-B4D3-C8D1EE7C7B7E.jpeg

    Hi Hannah
    I think chick 4 might be an Old English Game bantam but i'm no expert. 2 might be some sort of cochin.

    Agreed, although could you get a better picture of #2? Does it have "puffy" cheeks?

    That's exactly what my bantam roo looked like as a chick! I'm fairly certain he's an old English game also... based on my internet research, lol

    I have exact same chicks, except my OEGB is SDW, lol...

    D'Uccle's don't have muffs, just a beard... it's a Porcelain d'Uccle, no doubt...

    I have to disagree, although I've never owned one all the pictures of d'Uccle I've seen (and I adore the breed) have muffs.

    Hi Hannah
    I'm pretty sure you can't have a chicken with just muffs or just a beard, they have to have them both. They are both caused by the same gene and are technically the same thing but have gotten two names for whatever reason. The beard is the feathers under the beak and the muffs are the feathers up by the beak and ears. They are just two parts of the same thing.

    Actually, that's a bit different from true muffs... notice the direction it is growing... plus, these are hatchery chicks, not chicks from a dedicated breeder...
