I've probably spent over 10hrs pouring over the internet trying to figure out what sort of bantams I received 3 weeks ago from Privett Hatchery. I've sorted out the Silkies and Polish Crested, but that's the extent of my "expertise". I need help, please!!!

I asked Privett when ordering what they'd be hatching on the day slated to ship, and I was told Cochin, Silkie, Seabright, and D'Uccle.

I was not told of any Polish Creasted (of which I received 4) so I would not be surprised if any of these mystery chicks aren't in the breeds Privet indicated. (And that's fine, btw...I don't mind surprises; I'd just love to know what I have now!)

I've done the best I could with pictures; 3-week old Bantams don't hold still long enough for a "proper" photo. :)

I've included 2 pics of some in hopes one might be able to discern sex as well.

Thanks so much in advance!

LOVE this site and all the super helpful and knowledgeable folks who participate here, too!

The first two pics are a of buff cohin bantam. Pics #3 and #4 are of a blue cochin bantam. Pics #5 and #6 I think are of a sebright bantam. #7 I'm not sure. It has muffs like a d'uccle, but no feathered feet. #8 and #9 I think are of a silkie. #10 is a white frizzle cochin bantam. #11 and #12 is another sebright bantam.

Thanks so much!

Funny that #7 is the one that has me COMPLETELY puzzled too! I can find NOTHING like it online, anywhere! I've attached another picture of him/her here if that might help anyone.

Great call on #8/9 being a Silkie. He/she isn't just all fuzz (like our other Silkies), and I never simply counted the toes! (Indeed, there are 5!) :)

Thanks again!
