    They're about 3 weeks old, what we think is a rooster is getting really scraggly and looks like a vulcher [​IMG] Any ideas on breeds, age, roo or hen?
    They came from the asst. banty bin.

    The top 2 pics would be a D'Uccle Bantam, a Mille Fleur coloured one by the looks of it.
    Too early to tell if hen or roo but my guess would be hen.

    Black Old English Game bantam on chick#2, I will dare and say pullet on that one too(my OEGB cockerels usually get their combs early but there are some tricksters that look like your until they are 8 weeks old and then turn roo).

    Last chick also is a Mille fleur D'Uccle Bantam, also pullet(is it the same one as pic 1 and 2?).

    Sebrights do not have feathers on their legs. I agree with D'Uccle Bantam.

    Agreed on the Mille Fluer d'Uccles for first and last.

    Thank You! The 1st and last one are the same, my picture order got messed up, sorry. We think it's a hen and thought she was a d'uccle millie fleur!

    The other 2 pictures are also the same chick, OEGB is a great guess, but we think it's a rooster by the way he acts and he has a small comb. He's much bigger than the other chick that has the same coloring.
