    Hello!! So today I got 6 new bantam chicks from TSC. Pretty sure the one is a silkie (white) but not sure on the other 5. Any ideas?

    2 pictures of each chick attached to get different angles.

    Thanks so much experts!

    Chick 1 (white silkie?)

    Chick 2 has feathered feet

    I don't see a silkie in that bunch.
    Your feather footed birds are likely brahmas or faverolles.
    Weren't they in labeled bins?

    They aren't in labeled bins from Tractor Supply. Not the one near me anyway. Just a straight run assortment of bantams!

    My guess on the first 1 is a white silkie; buff brahma on chick 2; no idea on 3; no idea on 4; silver sebright for 5; no idea on 6

    Chick 1 does look like a silkie. The black eyes, beak, and feet are a giveaway.

    #1 clearly a silkie. #2 cochin or could be d'uccle. #3 and #4 and #6 gold laced or gold spangled somethingorother. #5 could be a silver spangled Hamburg bantam.

    TSC usually orders from either Hoovers or Privett Hatchery. Seeing that some of your chicks are Sebrights, and Hoovers doesn't have those, I'm guessing they came from Privett. Here's a link to the bantam breeds Privett sells: http://www.privetthatchery.com/home...pe=2&Session=6b0f11b0b4304c9184c4fe1ae033c78f

    Here are my best guesses"
    1. White Silkie
    2. Mille Fleur D'uccle
    3. Golden Sebright? BB Red OEGB?
    4. Golden Sebright
    5. I believe this is a Silver Spangled Hamburg. I see no bantams that are this color. This breed is generally a bit smaller, so it would be easy to get them mixed up with the bantams....
    6. Golden Sebright?

    #1. White Silkie
    #2. Mille Fleur d'Uccle

    #5. Silver Sebright. No large hatcheries sell Hamburg bantams.

    They're all adorable! :love
