    The lighter one looks like a Wheaten Old English game. Than black is old English also. 1 is a pullet and number 2 is a cockerel.

    Aw! What cute chicks! I'd say that the top one looks like a Black-tailed Japanese bantam, or as @minihorse927 said, a Wheaten Old English Game. I'm not entirely sure on the black on but if almost looks like a bantam Australorp with the white chick fuzz on the face.

    The white on the black chick is most likely going to turn completely black. The comb and wattles on his face are already red and big at 4 to 5 weeks old.

    I didn't even think about a black tail Japanese. That is another possibility but you should know within the next few weeks as it feathers in. A Japanese is going to be all white with black in the tail and in the wing tips. If it gets a wheat or tan color to the whole body or to the wings and the tail it is most likely a Wheaten Old English.

    I was thinking a buff black tailed Japanese so even then it would be hard. That chick looks an awful lot like a pic I saw online of one. Here it is, complement of Google- [​IMG]
    Except this one is a rooster. Hers looks to be a pullet like you said.

    Yes, the black will go away and eventually the white wing tip feathers will fall out when they're older and they'll replace them with black feathers, at least that's how it went with our Australorps. I saved all the cute little white tipped feathers! Lol

    Matilda and the babies in the relocated coop...building a run for it this week. They didn't want to go in the coop house tonight instead stayed on the roost close to light..buts it's not cold. ..silly babies covered the house with a blanket and let em stay on the roost. Coop looks tiny in this picture but it's 6 ft long 2 foot wide and they are getting a ten foot runner..roo's will be relocated can't have them in this community. ..:(
