    Very cute chicks, the last one depending where you got them from ask what other chickens they have. Obviously an egg just accidentally got mixed in. could be BR, Australorp, Black Orp or a number of other chickens that hatch black.

    Maybe you can ask him/her what kind of breeds she/he has with them. You might get your answer [​IMG]

    I think seramas could not be one of them cause there eggs are a little smaller then bantams. The other breed I will leave to the experts
