    So we got 4 bantam chicks this past weekend but I'm not sure what one of our little (hopefully) gals is. She is gray with a little yellow on her head and she doesn't have fluffy feet.


    Any ideas?

    Since the color is not uniform, I'd say, "Barnyard mix"... but sometimes they turn out to be the very most beautiful chickens...

    I do have one exception. Got a little barnyard mix to put under a broody back at New Years and at present HE is one of the ugliest chickens I've ever laid eyes on. The only reason I'm keeping him is for curiosity sake... I want to see if he's still UGLY once he hits 5 months, I will probably end up eating him.

    x2 on the porcelain OEGB. Or it could be a blue brassy back or blue quail OEGB. There are quite a few color varieties that look like that as chicks :)

    We just got one that looks just like this but she has feathers on her feet. No idea what she is. But she is cute! My daughter named her epiphany. Which if she follows her name, she apparently has a lot of realizations because she talks A LOT! We got another one that we think is a brown leghorn, so we got two but then were advised we should not have less than 4-6 since they won't be able to keep warm in the winter with less. So guessing we are going to buy some more chicks tomorrow. Let me know if you find out what yours is........or if you know what the ones like that that have feathers on their feet are.
