    Hi..I just got 5 bantam chicks that are supposed to be apx. 2 1/2 weeks old. I would love any help you could give identifying their breed, sex, and if the age seems correct. I have pics of them but because I'm a new member I can't post them. Any idea's how I could post pics for ya'll to see and hopefully get some info from? Thanks so much!

    Wish I could help you out but I don't know a thing about bantams -- they are a little young to sex yet - in some breeds, the girls sprout tails & wing feathers quicker than the boys, so at least some of your grey ones might be girls...

    Chick 5 looks like a Wheaten Old English Game bantam - female, too.

    click on the pic hon, it makes it bigger.

    Wish I could help but I'm just learning about bantams too. They are pretty for sure. Can't wait to see what they look like all grown up

    Thanks for the opinions it's very much appreciated:D! I think #1 looks like a roo too..the way it stands. Maybe if I get better pics in a couple weeks it will be easier to tell what I have here [​IMG]
