    I bought these little ones at Tractor Supply as "assorted bantams" and wondering if anyone can help me identifying the breeds. I'm hoping for a Houdin and Brahma.

    Thanks in advance,

    Third chick down is definetly a silkie; I think your first chick there is most likely a Houdan; Fourth chick looks like a light brahma, fifth chick probably buff cochin. Give me a minute and I'll get back to you on the others.

    #1 Houdan
    #2 Silver Sebright
    #3 Silkie
    #4 Brahma or d'Uccle?
    #5 Does it have "puffy" cheeks? If not Brahma
    #6 Looks more like a Cochin
    #7 Same as #4 and #5, depends on the "puffy" cheeks.
