    The speckled one reminds me of a Sicilian Buttercup.

    I looked up that breed and she does look a lot like the chicks! However, from what I can tell both my chicks have single combs.

    They are a week old now, one seems to have a smaller more compact body and have blue or self blue feathers? It also has more spread apart legs than the other one. Both have single combs and dark legs, the "blue" one has a dark beak.

    The "blue" one also seems to be feathering in slower.

    The blue chick looks like a Porcelain Old English Game Bantam, I'm still not sure about the other chick, but it could be a Buttercup Patterned Old English Game Bantam. ( They are carried by Ideal Poultry)
