    Just got some chicks today at our local feed/seed store. We got four RIRs but the other two my lovely wife just had to have and i have no idea what breed they are. [​IMG]

    I also wanted to know if would be a good idea to seperate the smaller two black and white chicks from the RIRs. Thanks![​IMG]

    Wow ,ok i was hoping that they were going to have a head full of feathers!
    I can see the similiarities in color in our chicks and Violet. The feed store did inform us that they were bantams. Thanks for the input and pic![​IMG]

    Yours are exactly what she looked like at that age, too. Their little bodies will just get more and more black as their feathers come in. [​IMG] Enjoy them, I think they are some of the most adorable things there are!! [​IMG] My husband, on the other hand, says they need haircuts. LOL Tell your wife I said awesome choice!!!!
