1. Come check out hundreds of awesome coop pages (and a few that need suggestions) in our 2018 Coop Rating Project!

Any info would be appreciated -bantams, crested and a couple of barred rock (pullets I hope)

    We have 2 barred Rocks we purchased as pullets. I think they are about 4 weeks old. I'm hoping someone can confirm this if they are old enough?


    The other four were straight run ( I think that is what it's called). 2 were crested and 2 bantams. They are only 2 weeks old so I'm guessing way to young to guess the gender on. I'm hoping someone might know more about the breeds however. :)

    Here are the two crested chicks.
    This first one has the tiny fuzzy footed bantam in the background as well.



    And then the two Bantams.

    Tiny fuzzy footed chick

    Multi-colored Bantam, who is much smaller than the crested ones, but way bigger than tiny fuzzy footed one.

    Thank you for any help you give.

    The barred rocks are still a bit young to difinitively guess gender for. I don't see anything on them yet that says 'roo' though.

    Your two crested birds are Buff Polish. The second one may even be a buff laced polish, very pretty.

    The little fuzzy-foot is probably a white cochin.

    The final bird needs more pics from different angles. Also, where did you purchase it from?

    Thank you so much for answering! I got them from a local feed store-Albany Oregon (willamette Valley). I'll try and get more pics of the multi colored bantam-thats my fast one...if I'm in the enclosure with them he's on my foot, running behind me...I'll have to get my daughter or husband to hold him for me. :)

    I'd say a white polish and a buff or buff laced polish on the crested

    Your crested's are both Polish. A white and a buff, I believe. :)

    As for the little fuzzy-footed guy, I think he's a blue splash Cochin. He could easily prove me wrong though. The blue splash that I bought last spring turned out to be a stunning white. x)

    Not sure on the second bantam, more pictures?

    Hope this helps. :)
