    Theoreticlly, they COULD possiable be bantams b/c there were some really small grey chicks in the bin too, but I don't think they are...but I could be wrong..

    If I were to guess I'd say black sex-link and a partridge rock but it is really hard to tell at such a young age.

    well, the striped ones look like EE's (aka Americauna's). i'm not sure. the brown ones - well, i have no idea, but they sure are cute!! Hope this helps! ):

    I agree that the lighter one is for sure an EE of some kind. The darker one I am giving a guess with black sex-link?

    I think I'll just go back and ask tomarro! Do you think they would know? The did have some RIR's in a seperate bin, so maybe they will...
    Also, I think I am going to see if they can order me a few other types; I'd love a dominique and a silver seabright. [​IMG]

    They probably won't have a clue - but you might get lucky!

    I have some that look just like that stripey one that I picked up at TSC last week and I'm HOPING they are EErs.

    I doubt its an EE, wrong leg color and I think I see a single comb.

    I'll try to get some better pics tomarrow when they are settled in better; Maybe that'll help.
    And just one more ?: Do I need to add anything to their water, like sugar or something? The borwn one is VERY active, the the black one isn't quite so much. She isn't sluggish or anything, just not quite AS active.
    TAT!

    OMG I got some too yesterday at TSC. Same kind as yours. I also got 3 bantams but haven't a clue as to what they are. I've never raised bantams so this is a new venture for me. But those lil babies are soooooo cute. I've never seen such tiny lil things, one of the bantams is black w'feathered feet. So I wonder what type of cochin breed it might be. Guess only time will tell. I'm just so happy my broodies adopted them all last night. They have new babies and the babies have that sweet love only a mom can give.
