    I got me some assorted Bantams at TSC today! I'm so excited. I got 2 that I think are Silkies, and I picked some pretty colored up other ones. I'm just excited about having some bantams!
    Here's the first one. It has feathered feet and almost looks like a blue color.

    Here's the second one. Its not walking quite right, so I hope it comes around. Note the leg color and the tuffs? I'm really unsure about this one.

    Here's one of the ones I think is a Silkie. I guessing it will be white.

    Here's the other Silkie. It almost has some buff and gray colors to its fluff.

    Unsure of these little guys. They are so tiny! Even smaller than the others!

    First pic looks like a cochin....maybe blue or mottled
    Second pic...?
    Third and fourth, silkies
    Fifth....OEGBs or Dutch bantams and yes, they would both be much smaller than the cochin and the silkies.

    I love OEGBs they are the sweetest little birds. Good luck with your new babies :)

    OEGB roos are sooo sweet. Although the pullets are sweet, too :)

    Do the OEGB's turn a "peppered" grey color when they get their juvenile feathers? Still trying to identify the breed of my bantum Pepper.

    Someone else just posted one that looked like the first one & was told it was a Porcelain D'Uccle...but please double check that with someone who has been here longer.
