    Can anyone identify any of these chicks from the photo. There are four different type bantams. The grayish ones have the feathers on their feet.[​IMG]

    Thanks for the welcome and replies! Ive had chickens before but never bantams. I got thrm for small backyard pets but also hope they are decent egg layers as well. I know they wont be as prolific as larger breeds but i think thry will be just fine

    Careful with TSC bantams. We bought 6 from one location and 3 from another. All six from one location died within 48 hours. Gave up and went to another site to replace them, only got three this time. The guy there said a lot of people were replacing bantams this year. Literally one died on the 30 minute ride home and one had severe pasty butt. I tried everything for that little chick. They would not let me inspect them before the packed them up, I asked. Said something about possibly cross contaminating from outside.

    Ok, it's been almost a month since my original post regarding breeds of bantams from tractor supply. This is a pic of the little yellow one that was hard to identify at the time. Looking at the new pic, can anyone identify this tsc bantam? Thanks!
