    TSC said this hatchery doesn't seem to label much. They are arriving as "Pullets", " straight run" or "Bantam". I'm new and excited but frustrated, especially since the required 6, leaves me waiting for a good mix. Here is the new bantam lot.[​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    I tried to crop some individuals. As you all know, we can barely get within spitting distance... The last bunch had mostly what appeared to be the d'uccle mille fleur. I can't seem to identify some of these. There is a handful of white but not really fluffy. None have 5 toes that I saw... The employee thought those were silkies. But didn't have dark skin either.

    The ones in the second picture seem to be Old English Game bantams, I'm not sure on the color of them though.

    The ones in the second photo look like Silver Duckwing or Black Breasted Red Old English Game.

    Thank you all for your help. Since they require 6 to purchase, I need to choose carefully. I am disappointed that the hatchery they are working with this year is not labeling much of anything. I understand the assorted bantams. But, why not give a list of possible? There are containers of chicks all same breed and they have no idea what they are. Then another that are all pullets, but again no breed. It is a bit frustrating.

    I hear ya, I'm not even gonna bother getting chicks from any store this year. I'm gonna hatch eggs from my flock, but I know you don't have that option yet, so good luck!
