    I ordered 25 purebred bantams from cackle and don't know what these are. 2 weeks old so to early for gender, right? But what breed are they?

    They are to young to sex though.

    My monitor is showing a rose comb on bird #2 (barred)...so that is probably a bantam Dominique.

    Last bird, #4, looks to be a Cochin....hard to see against blue background, but if those are fully feathered legs, bantam Cochin.

    The others are hard to tell...they are neither chick down nor adult feathered, so feathering is not clear enough to help, nor do they have an outstanding feature that earmarks them for anything yet.

    You may have to wait until they feather better then post more photos.

    Too early for any kind of sexing...just watch the combs...boys will get red and larger faster than girls.
