    I bought quite a few dozen mixed up but purebred bantam eggs from a friend and my sister, and they all came out at once-They both had a nice mix of bantams.I know NOTHING about bantam chick coloring-I was so hoping to be able to separate the breeds- Can you gals/guys help please??? I even got a few self blue (lavender) clean legged ones-what can they be??

    I am thinking BB red OEGB or duckwing on the chipmunk looking ones, and the black look like black japanese?? maybe??

    chipmunks are lookin like OEGBs atleast that is what my boy looked like at that age. The second pic I would say if they are feather legged and dont have an extra toe they are probably cochin, I have several babies out in the yard that look similar and mine are all cochin mixes. The third they certainly look like silver seabrights but I am not an expert on that because I had golden seabrights. Soooooo that is what I think.

    In pic 1- the chipmunks have single combs and half the black ones have single and the other half rose.
    I have 4 snow white ones clean legged that have rose combs
    4 lavender looking clean legged ones with a orangey-yellow head
    one black one with white wing tips and white belly-has 2 cute white fluffy spots on its head

    I think they are probably cochin then but not for sure on those the black ones may be either blue or black cochins and the ones in the first I stand firm on oegb if you had any white ones that were clean legged with straight combs I would say they were oegb too. but definately the chipmunks are for sure!
