    Got these this morning from Ideal. This is what I ordered but I dont think I got them all because the label on the box are missing the Ameraucana Bantams but I am not sure!

    3 Ameraucana Bantams, 3 Silver Laced Cochin Bantam, 3 Buff Columbian d Uccle Bantam, 3 Black Tailed Buff Japanese Bantam & 3 Red Silkie Bantam. I have 18 chicks 6 are all the same. I am trying to decifer what exactly I do and dont have! Any input would be GREAT!!!

    These are the following ones I have 6 of. They are bigger than all the others so does that mean they are standard breeds or are they too Bantams?

    And shouldn't the Americauna chicks have beards & muffs? I'm pretty sure the standards do.

    Quote:My EE's don't...that's why I was asking. I think they either do or don't but I'm new to having that breed...Just trying to understand.
