    Grabbed these guys last Friday, No clue what they are! Or how old either. They claimed they had just come in, but they had a lot of wing feathers already, and I have 3 that I hatched Wednesday that have less feathers, so..

    Breeds? Ages? Thanks!

    Do astrolorps and wyandottes come in bantam sizes? These guys came out of the bantam bin.

    I know Wyandottes can be bantams but I have never seen one in a feed store. Ask your store what hatchery they get their chicks from and you can narrow it down to certain breeds.

    What kind of comb does each chick have? That can help a lot in identifying the breed.

    Some do. I don't know what state you're in - some have contracts with Privett as well, possibly others. Unfortunately, Mt Healthy does not disclose what bantams they do have...
