    Hi, I have 8 week old bantams and RIR but I'm hoping someone can tell me if I have. 5 of the 8 that I own seem to be boys. Can anyone help? Also for my bantams, does anyone know what kind they are as they weren't able to tell me what I got

    First one looks like a hatchery RIR cockerel.
    Second one looks like a hatchery RIR pullet, I think
    third looks like a frizzled bantam Cochin cockerel.
    I can't see the last one that well. Looks like a cockerel.

    Thanks, I was afraid of that being the case. The first one was sold to me as a bantam even though it kinda looks like a RIR but has the feathered feet.

    This it the frizzled bantam. I think it's a rooster

    Anything with feathered feet is not a Rhode Island Red. Sorry, but I can only go by what I can see in the pictures. If I can't see the feet, I can't tell they're feathered [​IMG] And nothing for scale to tell if they're bantam or not.....

    First bird looks like another red bantam Cochin, and a cockerel.
