    We got 12 assorted bantams today and I was wondering if anyone could please help me determine what they are? Purchased from TSC, ours ordered from Privett . Edited to add some additional and better quality photos.

    4 I would guess is a poorly colored silkie.
    11 might be a sultan
    10 looks to have a beard/muffs, I would guess is a D'Anvers
    The others are a little tougher to tell without knowing what kinds of combs they have. There are so many breeds that come in those colors that we could guess all day and not even come close. Leg color will also help determine breed and can, in some cases, change over the first couple of weeks.

    Re-checked number 4's skin color, most likely a Silkie.

    It's sort of exciting not knowing what they are. I am hoping for mostly hens though. Any other ideas for the remaining chicks?

    I'm thinking that maybe chick number 12 is a bantam Sultan. What do you guys think? The little feathers coming in on the wings are white, skin is pink, has a 5th toe, a crest.

    On chicks 9&10, the wing feathers are black and white. What could that indicate? Barred rock bantams?

    Chick 4 I don't think it's a silkie if so not a very good one [​IMG] Silkies are supposed to have the bluish black legs and a bluish beak. But who knows my book could be wrong [​IMG]

    It has very dark skin, not black like the blue one. On the belly it's especially dark but on the back it is lighter but not pink like the other yellow chick. Any idea what it could be?

    They are so cute. Makes me want to check out the chick bins at my local TSC.
