    #4 is very small and has feathers on it's legs. The chick had some issues with it's feet when young and walked with a limp. Seems to be healthy now but has not grown, This chick is about ten weeks old and is about half the size as others. Should not be a bantam bread.

    Top three are EEs and the bottom one is probably an EE/bantam mix.

    Where did the birds come from? Hatchery or breeder? Any chances they're just barnyard mixes?

    They came from Crackle Hatchery. It was a rare breed mixed package. I'm thinking they are silver and gold duckwing by looking on their website. That's just a guess. The last one is a mystery.

    I think the first two could be game birds. Not sure on the breed of the third, but I think it's a cockerel. And the last one is probably a partridge Cochin. I don't know if they would have included a bantam in that assortment, or if it's just stunted.
