    Trying hard to get a good clear shot.. Not as many turned out well as I hoped! [​IMG]
    ***************************************************************************

    Couldn't resist some assorted Bantams from Tractor Supply. lol
    I only know what breed two of them are, the Silkies!
    Anyone have any idea what the other 5 could be?
    One is like a Silkie, has 5 toes, but doesn't have black skin? [​IMG]

    Chick A:

    This is a "Silkie" that is *not* a Silkie! lol I was told she/he is a Silkie, but she doesn't have black skin!
    Any idea what this one could be?




    Chicks D & E: These are the Silkies! Any idea what color they may turn out to be?

    She/he went to sleep as I was getting the camera ready.
    The flash startled him/her awake, and she/he flew up in the air, doing a flip!! haha

    Anyone have any guesses? I'm not familiar with Bantam breeds at all!

    Chick A, Silver Sebright? Chick B, Old English Game Bantam? Chick C, Brahma or weird not-black-skinned Silkie? Chick D & E, they'll be white I believe. Chick F, Golden Laced Wyandotte? Chick G, Light Brahma? [​IMG]

    I put question marks after them all because I'm not really good at this and just in case I'm wrong, I want to make sure everyone knew I wasn't sure. lol. [​IMG]

    Your little five-toed oddball looks a heck of a lot like my Sultan who has five toes and feathered feet. I think my sultan had less fluff on her feet though, yours looks fluffy like a bantam cochin! SO CUTE though, whatever they are!

    Quote:Maybe mine got her hair blow dried before she showed up here? [​IMG]
    Actually, I think the one of mine that was so fluffy is turning out to be a frizzle... still waiting.

    It's fun trying to figure out what they are.

    I hate trying to figure out what mine are. I'm impatient. [​IMG] I've still got about 4 chicks that are mystery chicks. I just wish that the people working at the stores knew what they were talking about when you ask what breed they're supposed to be. [​IMG]

    Anyways, are Silkies the only breed with five toes? If so, can a Silkie be a Silkie without black skin? Just curious. [​IMG]

    The little 5 toed, not black skinned ones have to be Sultans. 5 toes + beard + feathering in white = Sultan.
    The Silkies look like Whites.
    Chick G is a Mottled Cochin.
    Chick B could be an Easter Egger bantam. There are several breeds with that chipmunk look, but I think I see little muffs an beard on it.

    A- Easter Egger (definately)
    B - Easter Egger (definately)
    C - Sultan (sure of it)
    D & E - White or pale buff silkies could be splash but the pics are fuzzy....I say White though
    F - Speckled Sussex or Golden Laced Wyandotte (no idea only one I don't know)
    G - Light Brahma (Sure on that one - have had them before)

    This is even more fun after seeing other people reply. I saw that juliechick posted Chick G was a Mottle Cochin, but then SOS says it's a Light Brahma. Wow!! It very much looks like my light brahma chicks did, only darker on the back. But it REALLY looks very much like my bantam mottled cochins too, except my mottles have more dark spots around their face. You'll know soon enough when they begin to feather out. I hope you'll post more pics as they grow!
