    Hello everyone! I've been lurking here for a little while and finally joined so I could ask what kind of chicks these are! [​IMG] I got 7 bantams at TSC yesterday, and I've identified a white silky, black silky, and I think a light brama?

    Here are some pictures. Please let me know if I need to take more pictures or different angles, etc.

    White Silkie

    Black Silkie (or blue?)
    [​IMG]

    Light Brahma?
    [​IMG]

    Perhaps and old english variety?
    [​IMG]

    Not sure what this is...it's white with blue on the back.
    [​IMG]

    This one is white with black spots.

    And this one is the largest bantam chick.

    Any help would be appreciated!! [​IMG]

    The one that you think is old english variety. I have the same one and Im trying to figure it out also? I wish I knew what they all were but guess I have to wait as my hubby says we will know soon enough [​IMG]
    Maybe someone will come along soon and tell us

    The White chick with the blue on its back (5th photo down) is 100% Pearl OEG bantam. I own 3 of them and one looks just like that little guy [​IMG] We named her Honey.

    And the 4th photo down could be B.B.Red, but it could also be Silver Duckwing and I would guess (90% sure) it is OEG as well. A lot of chicks start out brown w/ dark stripes like that little guy.

    And the 2nd photo is a Blue silkie. Definately.

    You also have a black cochin (too young to tell gender, but I'm thinking pullet - we have Birchen cochins and I though we had 2 girls and a boy, but we have 3 hens. Some combs grow fast at the beginning then stop growing altogether).

    Top pic is definately white silkie.

    As for the black and white chick . . . I have no idea. Splash??? Don;t think so though. ^_^;;

    Hope this helps.

    Did you (or anyone else) ever discover what the black and white clean legged mystery chick was??? I have one just like it from Ideal and have no clue what she is. [​IMG]

    Hey MyPetPeeps, here is a picture of the mottled OEG bantam roo all "growed" up!! I love him to death!

    Cogburn

    He started out with a good mix of white and black and got steadily darker.

    Thank you so much for responding! I am so happy! I have wanted a mottled OE or Japanese and it looks like my nearly identical B&W new chick will be like your pretty boy! Although I am hoping for a girlie girl! Thanks again! MyPetPeeps
