    Both boys, I am so sorry!!! And I can't tell if it is bantam cuz there is nothing to compare it's size to.

    awwwww! [​IMG]

    well junior is really small! especially compared to the other one pictured....

    i wanted a female bantam so much cuz i heard they make good mothers and that they always want to brood.. i like it when mine brood...

    well,, do any of the chicks i have now like to brood like bantams do? I have a RIR, blk sex link, new hampshire red, ameraucanas, buff orpingtons, golden polishs...

    Im not an expert but buff O's dont have any other colors but buff I believe.
  6. The 2nd does not look like my buff orphington chick. It looks more like my new hampshire chick which has a black tipped tail, and the reddish orange body and black strip on its beak. But I'm a newbie to chickens. Just sharing.

    Buff orphingtons also Have lighter colored legs, they are more white. And yes BO's dont have any other color in their feathers.

    I agree - the second one is not a buff orpington. very cute, but not a buff. (we have 11 buffs and one buff roo in the henhouse, so that's all I see everyday and we raised seven of the hens from the time they were a week and two weeks old so I saw them as chicks.)

    here is what my buffs looked like as chicks. the smaller ones are one week old, the bigger ones are two weeks old and shedding their baby fluff for real feathers:
