    All 6 together in a box from the top:

    This one has fuzz on its legs and five toes:

    Looks like a tan chipmunk from the top:

    Same one that was with the white one, now with a brown chipmunk:

    Same as above:

    Any clues as to breed or gender? These are all bantams from TSC.

    Thanks!

    The 1st one is a ? Aren't Silkies supposed to have black feet? Your 3 chipmunk looking ones could be bantam EE's. The last one is a Silver Seabright. [​IMG] Those are my guesses.

    Do brahmas have 5 toes? If so, It could be a bantam brahma..
    I guess it could be hatchery quality silkie, but our TSC ones all had black skin..
    Nice looking chicks, mine are always blurry!
    What kind of camera are you using?

    Thanks for the replies! I can't wait to see how these little ones develop as they grow up. They're in good company with my ducks and geese and buff orpingtons now.

    Someone on the other thread (I posted in the wrong place at first) said the black puff ball one might be a cochin?

    Anyway, I'm hoping that at least some of them are pullets.

    chickenwhisperer123: Thanks for the compliment! A lot of my pictures turned out blurry too. I think because I was trying to get too close with the camera. I'm using a Nikon D-300 with a flash that sits on top of the camera. MY DH and I started our own photography business last year, so he had to go and get the latest and greatest toys... lucky me! I love the pictures it takes, but it can be a pain to get it out for a few quick pics... the camera weighs a few pounds.
