    Hi! I had a great hatch! I ordered a grab bag of various banty eggs from a seller on Ebay. They are about 5 days old now. I can ID several of them, but I do not know what breed these little cuties might be. They are VERY small, even for banties--I put an AA battery in the photo to show their size. Anyone have an idea?

    Quote:Pantherfansgirl: Banty is a size of chickens, not a breed. Yours sound like bantam cochins
