    The first three (pictures above and below). I am not sure if they are the same breed. They have similar markings on the feathers. They all have feathered feet. They were a straight run. The one with the most feathers is a week old. The other two we bought yesterday. Possibly a cochin?

    Bantams four through six (above and below) all have the same markings. We bought them all yesterday, but one is very small compared to the others. Their faces are golden brown. They were a straight run. My guess would be golden sebright. Their face is a golden brown. like the baby chick pictures I found,

    Bantam #7. (Picture above and below) This one was part of a straight run bought a week ago. It has a brown stripe down its head and back. The wing feathers look like they have tiny black dots. I am guessing it to be some sort of Old English Bantam.

    Bantam # 8 (above and below) was a straight run bought a week ago. If I had to guess I would say this is a silver sebright bantam, but the coloring was much lighter than the ones I saw as a chick.

    Bantam #9 is my snow white (hopefully she is a girl). This one is the smallest of all my bantams. Pure white. I kind of think it is a wheaten old English bantam.

    I am a total novice and my guesses are all just that. I have not Idea if they are male or female. My cell phone camera is not the greatest, and it had too much glare to pick up the true beauty of their feathers. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I agree with Chicken Girl1, though I think the remaining ? are Golden Laced Seabrights.

    That is what I was thinking too because of the golden brown face, but I wasn't sure because the feathers looked different from Golden Laced. They don't have the golden color to them yet, it is more of a tan.

    Quote: I have to agree with you. Will the feathers they grow now be like the feathers they have as adults?
