    I just brought home 8 chicks from TSC and tracked down the most likely hatchery they came from. As a result it became apparent that 5 are variations of Gold Sebright (one with a breed eliminating fault of a single comb).

    The other 3 are either Brown or Silver Duckwing OEGB. Are there any ways to determine which? Or is it a wait and see sort of approach?

    From my best guess they are between a week and a week and a half in age. OEGB1 4.3.18.jpg OEGB2 4.3.18.jpg OEGB3 4.3.18.jpg OEGB 311 4.3.18.jpg OEGB111 4.3.18.jpg OEGB211 4.3.18.jpg OEGB11 4.3.18.jpg OEGB21 4.3.18.jpg OEGB31 4.3.18.jpg

    They appear to be Silver Duckwing.
    Are you sure the others are Sebrights? I suppose it's possible, but dont know that I have seen one with a single comb!

    They already know that's what they are. They are asking for the color variety.

    The hatchery TSC got them from only carry bantams of the following breeds: Porcelains, Millefleurs, Golden Seabrights, Silver Seabrights, White Silkies, Red Pyle Old English, Brown Old English, and Silver Duckwing Old English.

    So of that list this previous little guy would have to be a Gold Sebright, right?
