    These are assorted bantams, I think they came from Privett Hatchery, all healthy, active, good-looking chicks.

    #1

    [​IMG]

    This is a super tiny little thing with faded chipmunk stripes under the silvery colored fuzziness

    #2

    [​IMG]

    This one is a little bigger than #1 I was thinking maybe a Buff Brahma ?

    #3 I am happy to find out these are porcelain d'uccles. COOL!

    I was thinking this was a cochin but I noticed it was smaller and has puffy cheeks (muff?)

    #4

    [​IMG]

    My favorite, it has a vaulted type skull but it is not a silky. It has 4 toes. I have no clue what it is and it was the only one like it. If y'all can help me figure it out i sure would appreciate it.

    Maybe it is a silky cross but, the skin isn't black.

    Thanks you are right about the D'uccles! The other 2 are still mystery chicks.

    Thanks to you all who tried to help. Will just have to wait and see on them I guess.

    can you tell what kind of combs they all have?? here are my guesses without comb information

    after looking at privett's site I came up with these options:
    #1 could be bbr oeg
    #2 could be buff brahma or gold laced cochin bantam
    #3 probably porcelain d'uccle
    #4 has me stumped, it's not polish(polish don't have feathered legs), silkie(doesn't have 5th toe nor black skin), or sultan (unless they have developed a buff variety)
