    I got these little chicks and they are supposed to be bantams but I dont know the breed. They are 1 week old. If anyone knows it would be a great help. Thanks [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Thanks for the response. I appreciate it and I was thinking they were to big for bantams.

    Can any one tell what they are? I really want to know what I have ended up with. I have tried to research and figure it out but there are so many breeds I really don't know where to begin. I think I figured it out and then find another pic they sort of look like. So I am lost and hoping someone might be able to help.

    What did you order?

    Have you tried emailing them..asking if they may have messed up your order?
    I have ordered from them numerous times, and only received one wrong chick...it was the correct breed just the wrong gender.
    I personally haven't had any problems with this hatchery but that doesn't mean you won't.

    I live in the same city as Ideal poultry. I picked the chicks up last wed. They are supposed to be Japanese bantams. I got them home and realized some of them have feather shanks, so I called them and they said they should not have featherd legs, and they gave me more the next week free of charge. I got them home and they also have feathered legs.. I called them up and they said its ok if they have feathers on there leggs, and that they are pure blooded.

    Do you have pics of the ones with feathered legs?

    They do look big but there is nothing there for scale.
