    I know I have silkies, but I'm trying to identify these 3 chicks. They are just under 2 weeks old and I purchased them from Tractor Supply. Anyone have any thoughts?

    Wow, I am stumped, but the middle one looks like an old English game of some kind to me. I have gotten bantum chicks from TSC 3years running (they don't eat much and I love the little tikes!). But I haven't had any look like yours. Good luck, I would have gotten that gray one, it is pretty. Good luck.

    Thanks for the reply. I had a feeling one of them was an old english game, but I had no idea which one! I was hoping for ee on #2 or #3, since I heard they had such sweet personalities, but they don't seem to have the greenish legs that I've heard they're supposed to have. I know #2 and #3 are similar looking, so I was wondering if they are the same breed, but my novice eyes just can't tell. As for number #1 - she's very pretty and very sweet, but no clue what she is!

    #1 looks just like the blue OEGB I got (also from TSC) ;) I'd guess that's probably what they all are. OEGB are pretty standard in the assorted bantam bin. My TSC had EEs in the bin, they all had beards, muffs and slate or green legs.

    Thanks for the reply! I think you may be right. I looked up pictures of OEGB's last night and I would say they are starting to lean in that direction. I will post pictures as they grow up just for conformation.
