    Are these chicks all OEGB's? They all looked the same under the red light except the grey one, but now that they are home and under a white light I can see a difference in their colors. I think they are OEGB's but what colors are they if they are? And if you dont think they are OEGB's, let me know what you think they are. Thanks!

    #2 a dark golden

    #4 a lighter tan with an almost grey tone to it.

    OEGB? Trying to figure out what that stands for....

    I don't know about the greyish one, but the other 3 look chipmonky to me... EE's?

    They could be OEGBs or Dutch bantams. They are super cute!
     
  6. I have one that looks identical to #2. My guess is OEGB but that is a guess as I have never had one before. The "chipmonkey" pattern is common with some EE's but these appear to be much to small of a chick. Again just a GUESS. As I am guessing on mine also. https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/uploads/65954_dsc_0238.jpg

    Well, I think #2 is a golden duckwing OEGB and #4 is a silver duckwing OEGB. I dont know about the other two. #3 could be a silver duckwing oegb, but she is more tan than #4 but not gold like #2. I just looked them up on cackles website since they have pretty good pictures of adults as well as chicks, and I am pretty sure about 2 and 4.

    OMG SO CUTE! #2 looks just like my bebe. Don't know what mine is for sure, been told OEGB, EE & the local hatchery told me it's a BBRed. So who knows lol. Here's mine when she/he was about 2 wks old...

    I'm no expert but I do think you have Game Bantams of some sort. I'm sure a real expert will chime in. There is a thread for OEGB parents, they can prob help you:
