    I just got these from the TSC swap yesterday. The guy guessed they were 4-6 weeks old. I didn't think to ask him but now that I have them it looks like they may be bantam. Anyone have an opinion if they are or not? or what breed they resemble (they are all mixes). Thanks in advance. The first two are pretty well feathered out and are still quite small.

    they could be but my guess is normal size chickens. as for breed there is some cochin in there, but what you got yourself is Grade A American mutt chickens. the first two are pretty .[​IMG]

    Quote:agreed, those are all bantams looks to be.
    From the feathering already and small size, large fowl would still be in fuzz at this size
