Can you tell what colors these OEGB's are?

    I bought these little cuties today, I'm under the impression they are OEGB's but I may even be wrong about that. Lol. Anywho, if they are OEGB's can anyone tell what colors they are? They came from Ideal Hatchery if that helps any. [​IMG]

    I would suggest going to their site and looking at the OEGB chicks, I think they have like 40 varieties so it could be anything.

    The 2nd one might be a black breasted red.

    Thanks for the replies! [​IMG] Theres just something that draws me to bantys, esp. all the colors OEGB come in.
    The fawn/red one is soo tiny, I worry about her but she holds her own. What scares me, is with my luck all but one will be roosters. [​IMG]
    I'm probably going to get some more next week cause the guy I got them from had a bantam assortment and I'm hoping he has some frizzles in there.

    I agree that the second is one is most likely a fawn silver duckwing. Ideal has a lot of varieties of OEGBs and that is where most feed stores get their chicks from. Check www.ideal-poultry.com. Click on Bantams and then on Old English and start looking through the varieties. If you click on one, it will show an adult picture and a chick picture.​

    Oh this guy isn't a feed store, he strictly selld chickens ans chicks from his home. also, I have a hard time viewing the Ideal site because I have dial up. Some sites just slow down and kill the internet. I tried, but It would take me forever.

    The guy orders thousands of chicks from there. He resells them to oter people like me, and the ones he doesn't sell he grows out and sells as laying hens or dinner roos.
