    I went to the local feed store today, and sure enough they still had the assorted bantams that I have been eyeballing for about 3 weeks. I picked out a few buff cochins, what is supposed to be a Pheonix, what I was told are sebrites, and what I was told are silver cochins. I picked myself one nice little cochin roo too! My question is more on colors...I can't find any pictures of "silver" cochins, only silver laced and silver penciled. The closest thing I have found to my chicks coloring is lavender. I'm not holding my breath on that one, lol. But, I am wondering if someone can tell me what color these are. Also, my sebrites don't look like any of the pics of adults or chicks I have seen - do I have some kind of mucky unrecognized color? And, if you could affirm my little guy is a roo, I'd be greatful, I have only had chickens for about 2 weeks, but I am pretty sure. Hope I am right!


    Here they are sebrite is in foreground on this one:

    I do not know aboutthe white one but the dark one looks like a OEGB and the rest look like porcelain D Uccles(In the pics they look feather footed, are they?).

    In the top picture the one in front is supposed to be a bantam sebrite, but did not look like the pictures when I googled. They are all feather footed except the brown chick and the ones that are supposed to be sebrites. The brown one is supposed to be a Pheonix - she described it to me as having the super long flowing tail....

    nettielou, your last pic (japanese bantam?) my little white banty looks exactly like that except pure white (no grey wing-tips), although, there seems to be the faintest hint of buff around the back of neck and chest.... i got them at tsc, (if that helps, i mean if u think tsc would carry japanese bantams)
