    I got these chicks from atwoods, in a bin labeled straight run bantams. So I have no idea what they are! Are they all the same or do they throw different breeds in there together? Anyone care to take a guess on breed and gender?? Blacksheep and Goldie have short little wings, and Stripe and Whitesnake have much longer wings. They all have furry/feathery feet except Whitesnake.

    Blacksheep is a black cochin, Whitestripe is probably a bantam Leghorn. Goldie looks like a buff or red Cochin, and Stripe is most likely a Mille Fluer D'Uccle (if he/she has a straight comb).

    Here are my guesses:
    Blacksheep- definitely a black Cochin
    Whitesnake- looks to be a Leghorn
    Goldie- Buff Brahma
    Stripe- Millie Fleur D'uccle

    Thanks everyone for your guesses! As they get older will I be able to confirm what they are? I didn't realize they would have all different breeds mixed together, but it's kind of cool to have a variety! I wanted a leghorn for laying so that would be cool if Whitesnake is, except for the fact that I think he's a boy :)

    You should post them again when they are older for us to tell their gender. :)
