    How old are they? Do any of them have feathered feet?

    I have no idea how old these are. I got them (a total of 14 out of the bantam bin) because they were being mistreated. I didn't care about age (just getting them away from that store) and I live in the country so all roosters get to stay. Also, these 3 have clean feet.

    In that case it's hard to tell but I'm pretty sure your 3rd chick is definitely a bantam. [​IMG]

    The 3rd one I am pretty sure too. It is one of the smaller ones. For it I really wanted breed ideas.
    The first 2, however are bigger than the other bantams. Also, I have no idea what they are.

    All my other bantams are feather footed and I am almost certain are cochin. Except 2 which I believe are poor quailty Faverolles... Not sure they are bantams either because Ideal (the hatchery Atwoods typically uses) does not carry bantam Faverolles.

    Thank you for the quick response! You helped me pretty much decide they are not bantams!

    Unfortunately hatchery quality bantams are bred for numbers, not conformation. The sizes of hatchery 'bantams' can vary wildly. I have had anything from close to the size of a normal bird, to a truely midget Birchen Cochin (who loves to take advantage of her size and fly). It is also entirely possible that ignorant customers handled the chicks and put them back in the wrong bin.

    At least they are all adorable! You're so sweet to rescue them.
