    Ok can anyone tell me what these little banties are? The black one is almost 8 weeks and has the sweetest personality and black skin. I am not sure if it is a pullet or roo though. Looks pullet to me. The 2 baby banties are almost 4 weeks old and I have just no clue whatsoever as to what they are but I do think on is a roo and one is a pullet.

    Thank you so much! I was right about the gender and was thinking game but am so new I wasn't sure. They are really sweet and so cute. Did you have any idea about the little black one? The tail swoops down towards the ground and the legs are clean not feathered? Is there a bantam black australorp?

    Can anyone tell me if there are bantam black australorps? If so I am 99% sure that is what the black chick is.

    Nowadays they pretty much have bantam versions of almost all standard breeds, or so I've read on hatchery websites.
    I am sure the black one is an Australorp. Beautiful chicks you have there!

    It looks like a pullet to me but I don't believe she is a bantam.
