    We picked up 6 little bantams today from Atwood's. Not sure what breed/mixed breeds they are. Still probably a little too young. One or 2 look like little EEs.

    I don't know, but maybe someone else will. Their coloring sure is interesting! That white one looks like a toasted marshmallow! Keep us posted, I'm curious what they'll look like when they grow up.

    Will do! I'm thinking one may be a silver sebright.

    Do you know which hatchery they use? Call and ask that will help you figure it out.

    I'm almost positive it is ideal hatchery. The assorted straight run bantams. Think we got a little blue EE, a BB red and the silver sebright.

    I personally think it's kind of hard to ID their breed while they're cute little puffballs like this. [​IMG] Could you post pictures when they start feathering in?

    If you can take pics of each one so that it shows profile and legs and let me know if the legs are clean or feathered I can help. I'm pretty good at it and enjoy it lol

    Thanks I'll get some pictures of the little fluff balls tonight. Had to take care of one over the weekend (the one I think that is a silver sebright) it had paste butt, but it appears to be all better now.

    Let me know if you need a better picture, Marshmellow may be a little hard to see.
