I gotta love it when someone who knows nothing about chickens gives me babies for my birthday.
Does anyone have any ideas? All I know is that they are 5-6 week old bantys. I've looked at the hatchery website (Ideal) and still can't figure it out.



1. Black, black face & beak, dark legs



2. Dark brown, light face & beak, light legs



3. Dark buff or gold, black tail, light face & beak, slate lets



4. White, probably Cochin, but has much heavier leg feathering than I've seen before



5. Blue, dark face & beak, slate legs



6. Different shades of buff, light face & beak, white legs

I believe the buff with black tails are Black tailed buff old english game bantams, the first one could be a Black old english game, second one kind of looks like a new hampshire bantam, the blue one im not sure about, and you deffenetly have a white cochen bantam rooster there.

Thanks for the help! About the buffs, though, one does have light colored legs, like my oegb, but the others have slate colored legs. Oegb don't have slate legs, do they? This is what confuses me about these tiny girls, the slate legs. Any ideas on that?

I would have guessed you might have a black and a blue Ameraucana bantam, and perhaps a bantam Buff Orp in the mix, but I'm no expert.
If the legs had been shorter on the buff with the black tail, I might have guessed buff black-tail Japanese bantam, but the legs are too long.
