    These are a couple of the bantams I need help to identify. I'm thinking the gold one is a brahma? Not sure about the black & white one. Thanks for help!

    I forgot to add. They are about 7 weeks old. I'm pretty sure they are both pullets. I got rid of 3 today that were roos.

    brown one is a Mille Fleur d'Uccle - pullet yes. She gets her spots when shes older. Other, I'm not sure. I'd say silver sebright.. but that's guessing.. hard to tell without the tail.

    Quote:TastiER if you ask me [​IMG] I can't figure out why but my d'Uccle eggs taste waaaay better than my EE eggs ever did. I actually thought people were lying about home reared chicken eggs vs store bought up till my hatching season ended and I popped a few soft boiled d'Uccle eggs. They blew my mind! But yes, very very lovely birds. I'm addicted to them. Even the roosters can be very sweet. They take good care of their girls, always dooking like loonies at treats and well-bred hens are completely fine with being scooped right out of the garden. Inspected. Then let go again after a lil affectionate stroke of the comb.

    Thanks much! I agree the little golden one is very sweet. She's one of my favorites.

    The one on the left is EITHER a bantam silver-laced wyandotte OR a silver sebright. I'm gonna go with silver sebright, especially if she is particularly small.

    Your d'uccle girl is adorable! [​IMG]

    The black one looks like a silver sebright. The tan one is a d'uccle, Mille Fleur in color. Both are pullets.
