    I bought 6 chicks on Friday, but one died today. I think I have 2 Silkies and 3 D'Uccles. What do you think? All are bantams, have feathered feet and straight combs. The white ones are not all white. There are some yellowish areas and bit of gray shadow areas. Is this typical of white birds?

    Do not what what breed they are but they are cuties! Our TSC girl said that if one dies to call and they will replace it. FYI.

    Yup, you have 3 Mille Fleur d'Uccles and 2 white Silkies. Though, your Silkies shouldn't have straight combs. Also, you should be able to tell at about 3 weeks old the sexes of your d'Uccles.

    Quote:Thanks for agreeing! No, the silkies don't have the straight combs, but they have puffy headpieces already. I couldn't resist when I saw they had bantams. By Friday I should have bantam cochins hatching in my incubator and 4 more coming on April 4 along with 4 buff brahma bantams. I know I have to stop NOW.
