    Can anyone help me? I am completely new to this. I have been looking at all these pics, my head is swimming. I tried to take good pics, would love any input, bantum breed? sex? My camera isn't that great, so the up close on the face is harder.

    Thanks for your help. I cannot believe how addicting this web site is. My husband is laughing his hind end off at me, taking pictures of chicks at 10 oclock at night, on top of the washer on a rug none the less.

    just a thought I'm still trying to figure out all the different breeds of bantams [​IMG] but IMO looks like you might have 2 golden sebrights, d'uccle 3 old english game birds (not to sure what color they are actually called) have no clue on the 2 light ones thou sorry

    The first batch looks like 2 Sebrights and a D'Uccle (mille fleur). The next batch looks like OEGBs or Dutch (but there are a lot of breeds that have that kind of coloration as chicks). And the last batch look like they have kind of shorter legs so I'm guessing Japanese.

    I got them at TSC. I have this picture in my head of a diverse flock that were all different color/shape size of birds. I called and mt healthy was the hatchery source. I really am new at this but I wondered about Japanese for the white ones after looking through tons of breed pics. They are the most delicate birds, not flighty, just very delicate is the only way I can think of to describe them. Thanks for input.

    x3 but I will add they chipmunk ones are definitely OEGB b/c Dutch would have gray legs.
