    I posted a while back but today I got some updated pictures of our little ones. As best we know, they are at least a month old, maybe 5-6 weeks....?

    Wondering the breed on these:

    Nugget

    Alfalfa

    Patty (I know...girl name and it's obviously a roo. LOL!! He was named when he was too little to know gender and who can resist a Chicken Patty. [​IMG])

    [​IMG]


    I'm also wondering if this one is really a roo. The comb and wattle hasn't grown much since I last posted.

    Big Red
    This is the picture I posted when I first asked:

    Nugget Is a Lavender Old English Game Bantam or a Lavender Dutch Bantam (White earlobes= Dutch, Red earlobes= Old English) nugget is looking like a girl

    Alfalfa is a Splash Japanese Bantam Rooster (high tail, short legs)

    Patty is a stumper. Might be a golden campine or gold penciled OEGB? Let's wait a little longer on him [​IMG]

    Big Red looks like a New Hampshire Rooster (is he Bantam or largefowl?)

    Thanks!

    They are all bantam.

    Thought Big Red was a RIR...?

    Giving this a bump to see if anyone else has input. : )

    I think Big Red is a pullet, personally. She's a production red, who knows if that's RIR or NH. lol

    Alfalfa is a Japanese, and a male.

    I think Big Red is a NHR (too light for RIR) and a female.

    No idea on the other 2 for breed.

    You can change Patty's name to Paddy, a common Irish man's name.

    Quote:Big red is a little too light in color to be a RIR, but it's possible. I'm gonna guess he's a New Hampshire Bantam [​IMG] Or a really bad quality Rhode Island Red bantam

    Hello,
    my name is Lisa this is my first time doing this so here it goes. There are some little bitties that my friends just gotten. They are smaller then regular chicken babies . They are brown some are dark brown and some are light. They have Green legs and green feet. They scratch like birds thats the only thing thats the same. no comb on their heads at all. they are already getting feathers on the wings. In which I was told that it is not normal for that to happen to little baby chickens. He thinks that they are little baby Quails but we are not sure. Does anyone that comes here know that baby quails look like?

    Yes, I know the gender on the first three, it's pretty obvious. We are questioning Big Red. But after watching Alfalfa, Patty, and Big Red have a couple teenage show downs last night...lol...I'm gonna say roo.
