    Okay, it is the light making them pink...

    They are really white.
    I think the one with a longer tail is a boy.
    I thought they might be white rocks or leghorns...They were in the 'assorted bantam' bucket.

    Any ideas? Gender and breed?

    Oh, yes and my bantam silkie (who's approx 3 weeks old) and Americauna standard pullet (approx 5 weeks old) are posing in the background for size comparison.

    The white chicks are about 6 weeks old I think.

    2 are leghorns
    1 is a barred rock.

    Can't tell what the back right one is.

    one looks like a d'anver, it holds it's wings and tail just like Donte' does.

    Actually the big one in back is an Americauna pullet (you just can't see her face to see those puffy cheeks and pea comb) and the one hiding behind the two white chicks in the middle has a zillion toes so I figured it was a silkie when I looked at its wings.

    I was thinking they have the...ummm...posture if you will, of my Jap Bantam.

    And another thing...they're kind of 'hyper or crazy' acting and good flyers so far.

    They're not into being held and cuddled, that's for sure!

    I think they're teaching my silkie and Americauna bad habits!

    Looks like my boyfriends Chabos.
    So... I think it's 2 Chabos (japanese bantam). One boy and one girl. [​IMG]

    Welll....They certainly have perky posture, but their legs are kinda long for JBs. I agree with Mahonri, especially about the behavior. Leghorns are not friendly birds. They're not mean, just not cuddly.
