    I got my chicks from TSC last week. I figure the 4 bantams are about a week old. I know the 2 ..... (cont. below) [​IMG]

    S/L wyandottes were there a couple of days longer. They are from Mt Healthy Hatchery. I am curious if anyone on here has ideas on the type of bantams they are. (all feather legged) No Silkies for sure. I figure its a little early for sexing, but I think the little white one might be a boy. Thanks for any responses! Also that water is cleaned out a few times a day. They are just really messy.

    This little one looks like a buff Brahma.

    Oh I hope so! They are very pretty! I think the little white one is a light brahma maybe.

    The first one pictured alone looks like it could be a partridge Cochin (if it has a straight comb), if it has a pea comb its a Brahma.
    The little black chick is a Cochin.
    #3 looks like a Brahma (appears to be pea combed)
    #4 has light brahma coloring.
    Those are my guesses anyway, they're super cute!

    Thank you! I will post updated pics as they grow. They are just the sweetest things. I hope I dont have multiple roos. I dont want to have to rehome any.
