    Hi, I got 5 chickens last Sunday. I'm new to owning chickens. I'm not sure what kind they are and also, can you tell about how old they are?

    What a cute little flock!

    Okay, I'm not a great bantam person, but here's what I got.

    The first pic and the one below it are a male and female gold sebright.
    The pic on the top right and the third pic down are also a pair--male and female--not sure on breed but I'm thinking like a black breasted red game bird. Someone more familiar will clarify that.
    The last guy looks to be a d'uccle. the color is called mille fleur.

    Pretty birds! I'm not an expert by any means so I could be wrong, but, I believe

    #1 is a Golden Sebright Bantam Rooster or cockerel (likely cockerel) http://www.cacklehatchery.com/gseabright.html

    #2 Either a Old English Game Bantam Black breasted red roo or cockerel http://www.cacklehatchery.com/oegbantams.htm (We have one of these black breasted brown, he's in my avatar.) or, if he's a standard sized fellow: Welsummer Rooster or cockerel http://www.feathersite.com/Poultry/CGP/Wels/BRKWelsummers.html

    #3 is also a Golden Sebright Bantam but a pullet http://www.cacklehatchery.com/gseabright.html

    #4 Is DEFINITELY an Old English Game Bantam pullet, Black Breasted red http://www.cacklehatchery.com/oegbantams.htm (We also have 3 of these near exact petite pretty ladies- great girls, very cuddly.)

    #5 The photo is unclear to me, but I think it's a bantam roo, (roo, due to the big red comb/ pointy hackle feathers) and I think I see banty type tail feathers on him but not sure... maybe a bantam Speckled Sussex? http://www.feathersite.com/Poultry/CGP/Sussex/BRKSussex.html

    Mille fleur d'uccle is also a excellent possibility as donrae mentioned.

    Hope this helps...

    #5 looks to be a booted bantam. No beard, so not D'Uccle.
