    I have great confidence in the chicken people here. What are these little cuties? Did I get a roo and a hen? 8) All I know about them is that they are banties.

    Hmm....they look sorta like blue cochins but they are clean legged. Maybe Blue Dutch or easter eggers?

    The one on the right almost looks like a silkie, perhaps a mix?? If they were purebreed they would have dark skin and feathers on their feet.

    I'm pretty confident they are not silkies. I have a flock of silkies. I didn't raise these, bought them at a pet store. They were in a bin of assorted banties.

    they would also have five toes, which these guys do not. If they were cochin, they would show some leg feathering. Honestly, they are a bit too young yet to give you a good guess I think...post some more pics in a few weeks :)

    Where did you get them? The one on the left looks like it could be a d'Anver or an Easter Egger bantam (muff, clean legs), the one on the right looks like an Old English Game Bantam.

    I've got about a hundred guesses popping into my mind right now, but it's so hard to tell when they're so little. x) Lovely blue color though! :)

    Yes, maybe a dun bearded d'Anver.

    I got these at a pet store, and they had tons of these little guys. I do know they are the same breed, there were too many of them all the same for them to be mutts.
