    We picked up 6 bantams from the TSC assorted bantam bin yesterday. One of them died (wasn't doing too good when we picked it up-- they gave it to us for free). What breeds are these? Also is it possible that you guys can tell me their gender, or are they far too young? I am not familiar with bantam breeds.

    Chick #3 & #4 (The runt that passed looked just like these chicks. All are clean legged):

    Chick #5. Feather Legged. Unfortunatley this one has a problem with his/her leg. S/he drags it behind his/her self. We are trying to fix it but we haven't had any luck.

    Might try the rubber band tie up on the legs to hold them together on the chick with the leg problem..... I read it on here and don't know if I could find it now... it was about "splayed legs".... but, one person had a "cure" with taking a larger size (longer) rubber band and cutting it, tying one end to each leg technically "hobbling" the chick so that it has to have the legs "somewhat together", but at the same time can walk, due to the rubber band giving... not a "thick" (medium) rubber band, but just a long enough one to tie and be comfortable. You might try the Search for Splayed Legs.. it can be treated successfully. (Select the "relevancy" after the search to get more accurate data, the Search just doesn't work as successfully or precisely since the "upgrade" of the site".

    Best of luck.

    I can't help with 2 or 5, but 1 is golden sebright and 3 & 4 look like old english game. It's too early to tell for sexing, but I had 2 oeg's last year that were bossing the brooder and picking on everyone that from their attitude I assumed correctly to be roos.
