    I bought these assorted bantams from TSC yesterday and really do not know what breed they might be. Can anyone help? Sorry for the lousy image quality but I was using my digital camcorder for the screenshots and also the red heat bulbs didn't help. I named the chick in the second image 'bandit' because of the black 'mask' around the eyes.

    All are clean legged bantams?? Gosh, I can't tell much from your pics. If clean legged, we can rule out silkies or cochins or d'uccles. And I don't see any sebrights. Do any have puffy cheeks? That would allow for bantam EE. OEGBs can look like just about any color...
    Sorry, I've been no help...lol. But at least I helped rule some OUT... [​IMG]

    Thanks for your help!! I have noticed one had feather running down the legs and I'm thinking I have a Mille Fleur d'Uccle! I think your right the others are oegb's.

    What kind of combs do they all have? That would help a lot.

    No fluffy cheeks so rule out d'uccle's. Could be a partridge cochin or brahma.

    The first chick on the left might be an old english bb red. The black colored one a rosecomb or black old english. the lightest colored one might be a seabright.

    thanks lilchick Now I'm thinking maybe brahma too. I'm all new to this so it's fun trying to figure out what i do have. My wife picked up four chicks from the assorted brahma's at TSC this past week. She also bought 6 buff orpingtons which are older and now getting their wings.
