    The assortments of bantams I've seen the feed stores get from Ideal included lots of OEGBs, Silkies, some d'Uccles and Moderns.

    Quote:I've seen some cochins in there as well, but at a couple of days old, it's hard to tell if they are frizzled. [​IMG]

    I got this mix a few years ago and got bbr oeg's, silkies blue white and partridge, cochins blue mottled white and partridge(1 was a red frizzle), golden sebrights - that's all I can think of off the top of my head. They all did really well and my daughters fav was the oegs. I still have most of them including a cochin roo that loves to ride down the slide with my daughter [​IMG]
