Anyone know the breeds of these?

    We got these from the feed store the other day. They were in a cage marked "Guineas/Bantams" and I asked the feed store guy if the bantams were chickens. He said yes, I asked what kind they were, he pointed up at a poster from Privett Hatchery and said "There one of them up there." Well, Privett doesn't have a catalog on their website, so unless I steal the feed store's poster, I can't figure out what breeds these are. Unless YOU can help me!

    Notes: There are four different bantam chicks, all different, and they all have feathered legs.

    CHICK #1 with black wing feathers coming in.

    Now here's CHICK #2, with buff wing feathers coming in.

    Here's CHICK #3, with weird feathers coming in.

    And last AND least, CHICK #4, the smallest.

    I've never had bantams, but I think chick #2 looks like the Salmon Favorelle chicks I've seen in pictures [​IMG]

    But I believe that all of them are of the "adorable" variety!

    Thanks Blue! I have to admit, they are a trifle cute.

    I saw a mille fleur on Feathersite that looked just like the buff one, but it said "Blue Mille Fleur". I don't know if they turn from buff to blue? I've never had a chick turn from buff to blue.

    They all look like cochins to me so far... Hard to tell for sure when that young. #3 Maybe Dark Brahma bantam?
