    Okay, my first time as a adult to have chickens. I got some bantams to start this year and they are 4 weeks old. Can you help me figure out what breed they are?

    I’d wait a few weeks but the third one in the right looks like it could be male from the position it is standing.

    I agree. you do need to wait til they are a bit older and more feathered out. So many chicken breeds look alike while they are little. However, i do believe you can elimimate polish, silkie, or any breed that has a crest. I dont see any tell tale crest bumps on the littles heads. Your feather footed littles are more than likely cochins.
