    Today my order of 4 Assorted Bantams and 4 Silver Duckwing OEGBs came in from Ideal. I also got a gazillion Light Brahma packing peanuts. It's a little shocking to open up a box expecting itty bitty chicks and being staring at HUGE ones![​IMG]


    These are the four bantams:

    1. Normal amount of toes and feathered legs.

    2. Normal amount of toes, feathered legs. Dark body, lighter colored face.

    4. Normal amount of toes, clean legs. Sebright?

    The feathered leg chicks are either Cochin or Brahma bantams. Can't really see the combs in the photos. Look closely at the combs to determine which. You should be able to see a small row of spikes if they are Cochins.
    The fourth chick could be a Sebright, but again, can't see the comb to say for sure.

    Hi. [​IMG]

    Thinking Cochin as well on the feathered legs. I didn't see Brahma mentioned in their bantam section.

    Sorry about that, two of the yellows have spike, while one doesn't.

    They do have Brahma bantams.

    Ah, I also think Brahma have 5 toes in addition to the pea comb.

    The spiked ones are probably Cochin. And that last one, probably silver laced. Maybe Seabright or Wyandotte. Sometimes leg color helps and of course they have different combs.

    Brahams have the usual 4 toes.

    Sorry, I was mixing up my brahma with my salmon faverolles. Thanks for the correction!
