    Not sure on these two here. The white one is named Happy Feet, cuz when she scratches, she dances, moonwalks, and shakes her(?) almost tail feathers!

    This little one shows up in NUMEROUS bantam chick image searches on Google. Golden Phoenix bantam? American Game bantam? Maybe a silver duckwing?

    We think the one on the left(next 2 pics) is a Silver Spangled Hamburg?

    The one with the light face in the 2nd and 3rd pic looks almost like quail d'anver I got from TSC just darker, maybe a different color? The striped one is probably an oeg. As far as the others go I have no clue, I ended up with 2 d'uccles(1 mille fleur, 1 white I know what a surprise, but that's the only thing it could be), the d'anver, 1 oeg, 1 cochin and a golden sebright from my bantam mixed bag from there.

    The one in the second picture looks like a Gold Sebright. Knowing comb types would help to identify them.
    What type of comb does the white one have? and the black and white one?

    Don't see any comb at all on either one of them. The 2 darker ones(in pic 2 and 3) just have little bumps starting. Not really sure how old they are either.

    We thought it might be, but then there were a ton of other breeds listed with very similar pics, so we weren't sure! Thanks!

    Sebrights have rose combs which sound like what you are describing. Hamburgs also have rose combs. EE have pea combs which are harder to see also.

    Another way to help identify your chicks would be to call your Tractor Supply and find out which hatchery they get there chicks from.
    Then look up that hatchery to see what bantams they sell. It will help narrow down the choices of breeds.

    I'll have my wife call them tomorrow then. I'll also try to get better pics of their heads.

    Actually I got my baby pics turned around, that was my golden sebright I was looking at, they looked kind of similar as babies. Your chick has the same face as the sebright, but the color is closer to the d'anvers. If it's a sebright you will know soon enough, mine started growing his beautiful feathers very soon after I got him.

    pics 2 and 3 are golden sebright, 4 and 5 are OEG. I got the same ones at TSC last week in Ohio, and they came from Mt. Healthy i think.

    My wife called them and ours are from Mt Healthy as well. Our little OEG is becoming a feather picker though....going to have to put a stop to that soon.
