So my family and I had all but three chicks die from our mail order from McMurey Hatchery so we went to a Rural King store and bought some replacement chicks. The only problem is that since we bought bantam chicks the breed of them is unknown and I was wondering if anybody was able to help us identify them. They are all around two weeks old. Thank you very much for any help!

We suspect that chick 1 is a golden bantam and that chick 6 and 5 are some type of Cohin, chick 4 might be a phoenix(?) and the chick 7 is a Silkie but we are at a complete loss for the others.

The top 3 look like wyandottes and 4 looks like a leg horn. I feel like I know what 5 might be but im lost for words. Maybe it'll come to me later.

Whoops didn't read the word bantam for some reason. So now im gonna say 3 seabrights (1-3). 4 has a lot of breed options being just plain old white right now. 5 and 6 look like a mottled cochins and of course, like you said, that cute little ball of silkie. :D

Thank you very much for your reply, I'm glad we got such a good group of chicks. The little white one is super adorable, her feathers are so soft and silky to the touch.
