    It's chick time again! We got 5 bantams and 5 standard breeds yesterday at our local ranch store. They get their chicks from Ideal Poultry. I've been able to figure out all but two of the birds. I was hoping some of you masters in the art of chicken could help me ID these specimens.

    This bird is a standard sized breed:

    I took two photos of the second bird. It's a bantam:

    Thanks for your help!!

    The first chick looks like a gold laced Wyandotte. The second I'm not too sure. Seabright maybe? Probably not. Ugh, I've seen peepers just like that before, I'm just completely drawing a blank.

    What kind of comb does it have?

    Here's a photo of the bantam's comb. Looks like a single comb.

    Is it a birchen Japanese bantam? I think those chicks have white faces. They definitely have single comes...
