    I bought a dozen eggs from BBB (Boggy Bottoms Bantams) in June that I incubated and hatched. The eggs were labeled "12 very rare assorted colors" of BB d'anvers. The chickens are now 4 months old. I can guess colors like black, mottled and silver quail but I'm stumped with the other color varieties. If you know or have any info, I'd be most appreciative! There are a few other chicken breeds in the pen - I know what they are, but sometimes they share in the photo! Thanks!

    Same hen as pic above. I call her Robin because she has an orange breast and looks like one! Any idea?

    Mystery color chix in back. Lavender? Chix beside splash Silkie is Creole or barred?

    yes the first barred pullets are from my crele project birds, look close to about done in those
    The blue is blue or blue cuckoo, cant see it clear enough to tell if it's one of the barred ones or not.
    Then also looks like some cuckoo. They are if they dont have any color in the barring
    all the others you have right

    Oh and thanks ramirezframing
