    I know the Silkies, but if you have any idea what color they might be I'd like to know. The Blacker one is not pure black but has some shading.

    Our TSC orders from Privett Hatchery in case that helps. The other 3 I'm clueless on so any help would be appreciated.

    They are all Bantams. MUCH smaller than the 'regular' chicks they were in with. Reason I thought the blackish one was a Silkie is the Black beak. I know hatchery bantams are not the best bred in the world. I got a white Sultan from McMurray back in October. He does NOT have a beard and only 4 toes, but definitely a Sultan. You can see him on the roost in these pics:

    Others in my flock of fall babies are: Black Cochin Frizzle, Dark Brahma, Splash and Black Silkies, and a dark Serama pullet.

    Thanks for the help!! Like I said, with my luck (previously 10 out of 15 roo's) they'll all be roo's anyway.
