I promised the wife I was done purchasing chicks. I had to make a trip to Tractor Supply for a new pair of fencing pliers, so naturally I left with 6 baby chicks...lol These 2 came from the Bantam bin, only a couple of days old. I initially thought they were a Partridge (brown) & Splash (white) Silkie, but when I got home, realized the white chick has clean legs and pinkish beak. Being only a couple of days old, it may be impossible to tell what breed (white chick), but I'd like you to take a crack at it, maybe narrow it down to a few breeds. My best and only guess would be a Silver Seabright, but the markings are different than the Seabright chicks we've raised. If I've learned anything though, it's that even though TS has a chick placed it in the bantam bin, pretty much "REALLY" only narrows it down to being some sort of fowl.lol Bin full of suprises...!lol Keeps things interesting. Thanks in advance!

They were both the only one of their kind, stuck out like a sore thumb with the black & buff Silkies. I just happened to be there when they brought the chicks out to the display. The only other clean-legged chicks in the bin, were gray with a slightly yellow hue. I brought a couple of them home as well, hoping they're Bantam Lavender Orpingtons. I have a Lavender & Buff Orp hen, but neither is a bantam. I'll actually post pictures of them here later. I appreciate your feedback
 
Going to see where this goes with the 2 gray (slightly yellowish hue) chicks. Only a few days old, from the TS Bantam bin as well. There was about 10 of these identical chicks in the bin. I know the pics. may be lacking, but this is just for fun. So, what do you think I am...?

I'm guessing Self Blue or Splash Old English Game Bantams, definitely not red pyle. Your first mystery bird is an Easter Egger Bantam :)
