    So i went to tractor supply and bought 7 chicks, one died so far, but the others seem to be thriving. I have 2 standard breeds ( i think) and three bantams i cant quite identify.


    [​IMG]
    Bantam #1 grey with feathered feet.

    [​IMG]
    Bantam #2 yellow, feathered feet, has a high cheekbone look.

    [​IMG]
    Bantam #3 white with a black back, feathered feet.

    [​IMG]
    Standard #1 it was in a box labeled "assorted sp. silkies" i know this is not a silkie and none in the box were silkies, i did get a silkie from the bantam bin though. Its larger than the others, friendly, probably the most intelligent one. I think it may be an orpington, but not 100% sure.

    Standard #2 this is an australorp i think. It was in a box labeled pullets. Is this right?

    Thanks in advance!

    The red chick looks a lot like a RIR but not quite sure.[​IMG] The black one looks like an Australorp, but a picture from above would help. I don't know much about Bantams so good luck with those![​IMG]

    The bantams look like Cochins, but they might also be Brahmas or d'Uccles. Not sure on the first standard breed, second one looks like an Australorp.

    d'Uccles are bearded and have feathered feet. My RIRs haven't be really mean at all.
