    i'm SOOOOOO excited!! i just got my first four bantam chicks! two are bantam rir and two are assorted. my question is, what breed are the assorted? i know that this will be difficult w/out pics, but i wanted to know what you guys thought. i will take and post pics tomorrow as soon as possible. the first is a creamish colored clean-legged chick w/ coloring like a light brahma. the second is a black chick with a little white. at first i thought that it was a bantam barred rock, but the feathers coming in are all black. the white is on the neck and a little on the wings.

    pics are here!! this is the one that resembles a light brahma w/out the feathery feet as a chick (Popcorn)

    Black Australorps come in a bantam variety. Looks rather like my standard BAs. Not sure about the yellow, sorry. Very cute though! [​IMG]

    ok, so know the little black one is completely black, with little wihte spots on her wings. the cream one is now a mottled brown and cream and is very small. I think she might be a serama, judging by her tail feathers and size.

    Hatchery's don't have Serama. Maybe she is an OEGB?

    I have two little bantams that look like your yellow one. They're two weeks old. I'll be interested in finding out what they are also. I'll be taking update pics soon and will post them to see what everyone thinks.

    Quote:OEGB = Old English Game Bantam. I have one that is very tiny, less than 16 ounces. Cackle sells them. Here is a pic of a chick from their website:

    that looks exactly like the little black one, do you know if they have those blue wattle things?
