    We bought 3 chicks on Sunday, 3 Banty's from a feed store. We aren't quite sure how old they are, they have their feathers on their wings and 1 has feathers on "her" feet. This one also has had a bit of poop stuck on her bottom, we've soaked her in warm water to get it off. They have chick starter to eat. They also cheep really really loud.

    We have 1 adult rooster and 3 adult hens, already. We have raised chicks before, so we aren't completely new [​IMG]

    Here are a few pics, maybe you could help out with exactly what they are and their colors.

    Thank You [​IMG]

    [​IMG] from Ohio, The one in the center looks like a golden laced cochin, maybe. I can't tell what the others are, need closer side and head pics. They are cute. [​IMG]

    The one with brown & black wings and feathered feet look just like our mille fleur d'uccle's we just got. Very sweet and only in bantam. They also have a a dark golden brown head (on the top) like the color of dark caramel.

    Have fun they look like sweeties! [​IMG]
