    I think the on you think could be a wellsummer indeed this is my little purebred little welsummer: [​IMG]

    Hope that pic worked. I also have a purebred austrolorp that looks like this:

    These pics were taken at a day old, which seems a similar age to your pics! Mine have grown so much in a week!

    Agree about the Sebright and D'Uccle opinion. Bantam Welsummers are pretty rare and I'm not sure any hatchery sells them. That chipmunk coloration is pretty common, though. Any BBR, Gold Duckwing, Wheaten etc will have it. I think a lot of Hatcheries sell Games (OEGB, Modern) bantams and maybe Dutch. I would contact TSC and see which hatchery they came from then you can go to the list of Bantams they sell and match up the photos with the chicks. That last one is a little out of focus so I can't see if its more of a solid dark or if there are mottle splotches of color on the head. Perhaps another photo?

    "TINY MIGHT" by far the smallest but is the meanest to the other chicks.

    No feathery feet on RED. I've been looking at pics of RIR chicks and they no where near a red as this one much lighter on the chest that RED is. So IDK first time having chicks so I have no idea.

    Glad to help! [​IMG]

    Just one quick question about Red: Does she have "poofy" cheeks?
