    i have 29 bantams from ideal that came in yesterday. i ordered three each of silver sebright, milli fleur d uccle, black japanese, blue wheaten, and red pyle. i didn't post the black japanese since they were easy to pick out. i'm pretty sure we've got the others figured out, but i thought i'd ask you guys and gals for your opinion. aside from those i listed, the other fourteen were a grab bag (some are the same). just curious to see if anyone recognizes any right off.

    ok, we're thinking maybe #13 is a rhode island red...

    I've never seen a RIR that dark, but I've never seen a RIR banty, so who knows!

    I'd guess Buff Cochin for #12.

    I think the rest of your guesses are what I would guess.[​IMG] Not very helpful huh?

    That speckled face on #11 looks so familiar...but I can't for the life of me remember where I've seen them.[​IMG]

    Cute babe's and good pic's though![​IMG]

    10 and 11 look like Buttercups. Here are mine at a few days old for you to compare.

    I agree about number 11 being a buttercup. I am not sure about 10 I would have to see the side of its face better. 7 sure looks like a black cochin to me too. 9 kind of looks like it could be a japanese.

    thanks so much! we're killing ourselves trying to figure out what the fat lil red guy is. so poofy. everyone else has wing feathers now (6 days) and he/she is still just a little fuzzball. i'll try to get updated pictures now that everyone has feathers coming in.

    Yes! It was Buttercups, oh thanks for posting that, trying to remember wher I've seen them was driving me crazy!

    But I didn't know that Buttercups came as bantams.[​IMG]
