    This spring I purchased a few bantam chicks from my local atwoods. I show poultry and was considering exhibiting some of these birds at a show this fall. I have included photos of the birds I have had difficulty identifying. I really appreciate all help, thanks!

    Please ignore the missing tail feathers, one of my guineas got into the bantam pen and decided to pull out some feathers. :/

    I don't know many breeds but go to the BYC breed section and on the side there are options scroll down and look for breed size I think and it will say large fowl or bantam and click on bantam then just search for the breed

    The two gold one's look like Seabrights to me, but don't hold me to it. ;)

    They definately could be, but the coloring looks like a GLW

    Probably because gold (and silver) sebrights are laced - just like GLWs (or SLW) -- the birds pictured are sebrights based on body structure and skin (leg) color.

    Bird #5 is a SLW roo - see the difference in body structure and skin color?
