    I purchased chicks 6 months ago. There were two of these (both roosters) included. I am not sure what breed they are [​IMG]

    Looks he might be a black sexlink from a Barred Holland hen crossing. Definitely not a purebred.

    Hello,
    Can you please help us identify what breed this 8 week old bantam chick is. We think she is a pullet.
    Thank you :)

    I got them from a breeder in northern Il. She was selling her stock due to a divorce. She said they were Swedish flower hens. They are both roosters. She had Cochin, americauna, copper marans, bielefelders, Swedish flower and orpingtons. That is what she said anyway. Thank you

    It looks like a white cochin bantam to me, and I think pullet.

    Swedish Flower hens have a wide variety of colors/patterns, but they don't have barring. And Biels don't have white earlobes. The one pictured could be a Bielefelder/Swedish Flower cross. None of the other breeds listed are possible due to dominant genes, not present in the pictured bird.
