    Hi - new to this and would appreciate some wisdom. I've raised/had birds my whole life, but this is my first time as a chicken-mom.

    I figure it may be too early to tell especially with the yellow chick, but one in particular has interesting markings and I'd love to know what they are. I got them from Callahan's assorted Bantam bin - so I'm not expecting show quality birds or anything, just some pets who will hopefully gift us with some eggs.

    Please let me know if other shots would be more helpful.

    Thanks a bunch!

    Chick #1 Lucy - this one's legs and feet are different from the rest. They look like the bones under the yellowish skin are black. No feathers on them.

    Chick #2 Soleil

    Chick #3 Bella


    Chick #4 Dali

    Very pretty birds! It is really too early to tell what they are but try posting some more pictures when they are older!

    It's a little early to tell try posting pictures of them in 2 weeks to a month if you want better identification.
