    I've got 3 of these little black and yellow/white bantam chicks and i have found 1 or 2 possiblities but was looking for any other suggestions. The legs are black with yellow and black toes.

    They are likely Black Australorps or Black Orpingtons.

    Alright so here it is 4+ weeks later and these chicks have feathers but no more growth than when they were days old. Any new guesses? For size reference the Cochin, White Leghorn and Buff Orpington are the same age or close enough. [​IMG]

    The buff bird is a Buff Wyandotte, not a Buff Orpington, since it has a rose comb. The small black one is probably a bantam Black Old English Game, which explains its small size.

    I didn't put up a picture of the BO comb. It's only the 2 small birds.
