    I ordered the clean leg bantam assortment from ideal and I would really love it if someone could weight in on what they may be. 2 are 2 weeks and 2 are 1 week, these are the most unique chicks out of the bunch. These rest are yellow, why can't chicks be easy? Lol

    I think the last one could be a grey Japanese bantam.

    Yeah the 3rd one is a goldeneye laced something, what's the differance in combs between the 2? The last one was seating down but he was part of my Japanese special. I got a ton of yellow chicks in my Japanese special and some thier wings are growing in and have some black in them so I'm confused.

    They are most definatly oegb if there color is not coming the same your hen or rooster has had another type blood added b4 just took a few genrations to show up this is called a throwback it is a genetic thing to stay pure you have to linebreed inbreed outcross then linebreed back kennyitroiano wrote a book on genetics and how to breed for putity conformation plumage you will have look him up on internet it pertains to gamecocks but it goes for all fowl he is very knowledgable & it could makke an improvment to your flock i hope this helps butcher boy

    oegb have single combs and sebrights have rose combs. the difference between the 2 combs may not be noticable at this time.

    the japs that you are talking about are the black tailed white japs. these do have black on their wings
