    Went to tractor supply today to see if they had any Black Australorps and ended up coming home with 7 mixed bantams instead. 5 of them I'm pretty certain are bantam cochins 3 of which I believe are frizzles. I think the other two are a polish and a sebright, but I could be wrong. I have bantam cochins so I know what the look like as a chick, but I don't know about the other two.

    The tiny one on the left I think is the sebright.

    This is the one I think might be a polish.

    Sebrights have slaty blue legs and a rosecomb. I can't see well enough in the picture to tell, but it's a place to start in narrowing the breed posibilities.

    It's legs are a little blueish compared to the others. It's also the smallest of them.

    I don't take size as a breed indicator, I have chicks that were hatched from the same parents that are quite different in size. Is the comb a little straight one or broad and flat?

    Looks flat compared to the others. I had to pick it up and squint at it to see it's comb, it's barely visible.
