    1 is a Golden Sebright Bantam, 4 is a White Silkie Bantam, 3 could be a Speckled Sussex or a Gold or Silver Old English Game Bantam, 2 is a cockerel.

    They may be a mix of other breeds, it is tough to say. The chick in the last picture may be a brahma based off its feet, but other breeds have fluffy feet too. Look up pictures of brahma chicks and compare is probably the best advice I can give you.

    I have been googling all day and it is very hard to find pictures of chicks lol. That is why I signed up here. So pretty much we probably didn't get brahma's. That bums me out because that is what we wanted. #1 and #2 were fighting pretty bad last night so we separtaed them for a little bit. I have a runt that looks slightly different I think to.

    Your “runt” is a Golden Sebright Bantam chick. Bantams are smaller than large fowl chickens.
    Any birds you have that don’t have feathered legs are not Brahmas. The ones that do have feathered legs may be Brahmas.

    Thank you so very much for all your help!! Are those 4 breeds friendly or do they have attitudes lol. I am worried because also I have way more roo's than we were exspecting. Out of 24 I am pretty sure half or more are roo's.
