    What is the difference in these two breeds? I am trying to figure out what my 6 chicks are. I got them at the feed store, they are super tiny and range in color from chipmunk to faded chipmunk with a silvery sheen. The feedstore uses Privett and they offer both Old English and Dutch. They are extremely active compared to the cochins. Some are tinier than the others.

    Thanks that is exactly what I needed to know. I guess I have some waiting to do. They are cute, it is hard to believe chickens can be so small.
