    I got some chicks from Tractor Supply recently out of the "assorted bantam" bin, and am trying to figure them out.

    This guy looks like a sebright, but the color? Don't they only come in gold & silver?

    I assumed this guy was a cochin, but he has poofy cheeks??

    Partridge? Breed??

    Yeah, but they're all bantams. [​IMG]

    I'm looking at chick pics right now, and #3 looks like maybe a silver duckwing game? Maybe?

    yep #4 looks like a silver duckwing oegb, but there are a lot of breeds who have that same pattern as a chick. they are cute

    It's definitely interesting! I might not know what they truly are till they're full grown. [​IMG]

    #2 is IMHO a birchen cochin- and I suspect roo--could be mottled though instead of birchen-

    Ohh, I would love a birchen! So far his wings are only black. Don't need another roo, though! [​IMG] I have another one that I *think* is a silver laced that I have a hunch is a roo, also. [​IMG] Go figure!
