    I have this beautiful assortment of chicks that i got from Tractor supply but I have no idea what kind some of them are. Look at the pics and tell me what you think. I know the first three are bantams and they have beautiful feathered legs. The last one has feathered legs but isn't a bantam. They are all pullets and they seem to be developing a single comb but I don't know if it is too early to tell what type of comb they will have. I am new at this chicken thing so any help will be useful. Thanks[​IMG] [​IMG][​IMG]

    Just wanted to add that they are totally random chicks and didn't (from what I know) come from the same brood. The dark bantam (third pictured) is very strutty and generally behaves like a roo so I believe it may be a cockrell instead of a pullet like the other chicks.

    I agree. I am thinking #4 is a Wyandottee. She just looks like one. I figured out the d'uccle last night too. It is an interesting bunch for sure. Thanks for your help.
