    Hey everyone!

    I just joined but I follow this site religiously because chickens are one of my very favorite animals! Today I finally got to purchase a couple. I got 2 RIR and 4 "assortment" bantams which means I'm not sure what I got there but all four of them look very near the same in terms of coloration. Could you guys maybe help me pin down what breed they are?

    They are bantams and compared to the RIR chicks, it's pretty obvious. They're tiny! The faces are brown but the bodies are a mottled gray color and they have gray legs, too.

    I think maybe buff brahma bantam. Got some of those too!

    So we've got two guesses! Maybe I'll get lucky and it'll be two of each. How do you like your Brahmas? I really only wanted a flock of pet chickens, I'm not particularly worried about meat or egg production so long as they are friendly! Are your Brahmas friendly?

    While it does also look like a buff brahma bantam the chick appears to have clean (non-feathered) legs which would mean its not a brahma :(
