Hi guys I am wondering if you know of a way to identify bantam chicks from ''regular'' chicks. I was sold 2 chicks as cochin/wyandotte chicks and was told they were full sized birds. They are now around 9 weeks old and they are roughly the same size as my 10 week old silkie chicks. Was I sold bantams?

Bantam chicks are about half the size of regular ones, there's bantam Wyandotte and cochins, so it's certainly possible. Time will tell.
