    If the feed store got their chicks from a hatchery, I doubt the 3rd one is a Serama since no hatchery that I'm aware of offers them.

    #1 - BB Red OEGB
    #2 - Silver Duckwing OEGB
    #3 - Uncertain at this point

    Quote:Agreed but the 3rd one looks a little Japanese Bantam to me with the upright tail. Maybe Black tailed buff japanese bantam?
