    Ok, so my hubby surprises me today with 5 cute cheeping little bantams, and, being relatively new to actual BREEDS of chickens, I haven't got a clue. I poured over pictures on feathersite, google images and of course on the forum here, got to page 13 in the section and decided I'd just ask.

    EDIT-I just found out that they came from Ideal Poultry

    I think the one with the feathers on the legs may be a Buff Cochin, he has 4 toes ( I read that Silkies have 6). He is also a bit bigger then the others, but doesn't seem standard size. The striped ones I'm guessing BB Phoenix, and the last two I haven't the faintest. DH thought that the two blondes were the same breed, it was only when I was photographing them that I really saw the difference. So here we go:

    The whole crew:

    The feather legged one:

    The little blondie:

    The Twins:

    The little black one:

    He wouldn't hold still, so DH helped a little. I'm trying to show that his bum is yellow-ish, not the monster poop!

    I know that some may be hard to figure out until they are older, but I thought I'd give it a shot now. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    (also, do you just use html image embed to show them on the board?)-figured that out thanks to CovenantCreek

    REALLY? Oh, boy am I excited about that! So I am guessing that all EEs don't look the same as chicks, but are different depending on the adult color pattern? Do you know what color pattern this means?

    Yes I think the twins are EEs, they look alarmingly like the ones HorseFeathers used to have as her avatar. Even the expressions are the same! [​IMG]

    The Blondie might be a buff orpington. i love buff orpingtons! [​IMG]
    And yeah, the feather-leg one could be a buff cochin.

    I have no idea about the black one though.

    They are all so cute!

    whoops, forgot this one! [​IMG]

    Chookies-thanks for insight on the Blondie and thank you for the welcome![​IMG]

    Bock_Bock- that's so awesome! Thank you for the pictures! I am so excited and hoping that my hubby's remark "Knowing my luck I'll get all roosters" isn't true![​IMG]

    Does the black-ish beak and legs on the little black one point to anything?

    The one with feathers on the feet looks like a brahma - looks exactly like my chick. Very cute. One just makes me want another one and then another one and then another two...

    Hens- you are so right! I went back to day, I just wanted one....but walked out with 3! One was a freebie, she has a deformed beak, I am hoping she will make it though.
