    I've googled both breeds and I have 4 chicks I received in my Ideal Poultry bantam special order. I initially thought it was a golden Sebright but now I have my doubts . Any input would be of great help to me.

    Golden Sebright. They are more contrasting in their black / white. The Mille Fleur blends more and has a more smoky / "cinnamony" look to them. Cuteys!

    The bird in back is a Golden Sebright. However, the chick in front has a single comb, which makes it either a hatchery quality Sebright or a Mille Fleur Old English Game bantam.

    The chipmunk colored ones are Old English Game Bantams of some color.
