    Just picked these up from hardware store, staff on duty didn't know breeds. Yellow one has no feathers yet, others have a few days on him/her and just starting wing feathers.

    Relaxing with my Buns
    The 2 striped chicks look like a old english bantam or BB Red
    The yellow chick ? will probably turn white when he/she grows up
    black chick looks like a black bantam maybe a black Japanese or something else black
    Black chick with lightish face is something
    Could you get better pictures please of them individually
    They all look like bantams to me except the black chick with lightish face. They are probably purebreds but not sure what they are exactly until they get a little older

    I have no idea if bantams or regular ones. My first round of hens last year came to me at 4 weeks, and these babies are only a few days (my best guess) so I don't have a "normal chicken" comparison point

    Ophelia could possibly be a dUccle, Mille Fleur Bantam

    I'm leaning towards them being standard sized but it's hard to tell from pictures.
    If standard, likely a Black Australorp. If bantam likely a Black Old English Game.

    You're welcome :) I am curious to see if they actually are bantams or standards.
