    Hello! We picked up 6 bantam chicks from Tractor Supply and they're around 3 weeks old now. We're stumped as to what some of them are! Any help would be much appreciated! =)

    Two are yellow/black with feathered feet and are growing some white feathers. We believe they're mottled Cochins.

    One is buff colored with some patterning on the wings and feathered feet. Could it be a buff Cochin? I didn't think they had color on the wings though.

    One is a red/buff color with feathered feet and patterning on the wings also but much darker than the first.


    One is brown with chipmunk patterning. We believe this is a Welsummer?

    And lastly, this is the smallest and is white with black wing patterns and it stands differently than the others - upright with its wings down. Could this be a japansese bantam? If so, what color?

    Thanks in advance for any insight!!

    I agree with all your guesses but the chipmunk one that I think is an Old English Game bantam.
