    Hi,
    I'm brand new here, and a fairly new chicken owner. I got these guys out of a 'rare breed' bin, and have no idea what they are. I think they're 1-2 weeks old. Sorry the pics of the brown one are so bad! Any help is greatly appreciated! TIA!!!

    tfpets Mmm, tastes like chicken

    The brown one looks kind of like a Brown Breasted Red Old English chick, but they are bantams? Is yours a Large Fowl? It seems too dark to be a Gold Laced Wyandotte. Here is the BBR Old English chick from Cackle:

    The little blue one is a mystery still, I was thinking perhaps an Easter Egger, but I'll keep looking. Not a Cochin - No feather legs...

    I've only had chicks of 3 different breeds, so I can't help you, but maybe someone else can.

    Welcome to chick-dom, chicken-dom. They look great, whoever they are.

    I don't think these are bantams--I have three other bantams, and they don't look anything like they do--but I know there are LOTS of varieties of bantams...I think the brown one does look like the BBR Old English pic. She is quite dark--here are some better pics I just snapped today:

    And these are our three bantams:
