    I purchased 6 chicks from TSC from the "asst. Bantam bin" and I'm dying to know what breeds. I'm new to chickens, and whereas my mother in law is a massive help with care, she knows nothing about breed!
    There are (2) striped, clean legged
    (3) yellow/cream feather legged with 5 toes
    (1) dark yellow/buff with feathered legs, 4 toes.
    Thank you!

    No purple skin. That was the first thing I looked for!

    Well I'm not sure on your clean legged birds, but your feather-legged five toed babies are sultan bantams :)
