    I bought these 6 babes 4 weeks ago. They were not sexed nor did the people know the breeds of these bantams. All I know is I'm in love and would like to here from you ol' timers (not meaning age) your thoughts. I do not think they were the same age when I got them as well. I'm working on my picture taking skills so forgive the blurry or light issues. If needed I will give it another try.

    1:Not a great pic but he/she has gold stripes in the wings

    2:

    4:Yes, thinking roo [​IMG]

    5:

    6:[​IMG] Didnt get a body shot of this one but he/she is a lot larger than the rest.

    Thats my new babys and thanks for any help in advance. [​IMG]

    no idea here either as I don't even have chickens yet, but this will help bump your post.


    could that crest on the last one suggest a polish?

    Oh my! They are all adorable. Your Roo looks sweet. #5 and #6 are hysterical and adorable. Good thing you don't have an address posted because I would probably be there ready to take those little sweeties! Lucky chicks and mama.

    As for breed....no idea. I hope someone will answer so I can go get me some. Congratulations!

    I will try my hardest. Assuming they are pure breeds even if they are hatchery stock I am going to say

    1. Possible gold laced cochin, what kind of comb does it have?

    2.Black cochin

    3. Buff laced sebright

    4. Possible black old english but it looks like it might have a slight beard/muff or something. It could be a japanese also or a couple other breeds.

    5. Well its a black crested bantam, correct? I am going to say a black polish because I cant see the number of toes, it might be a crevecour also.

    Thank you for your reply!
    1: The comb is very thin and very small. I tried to take more pics of (hoping her) but you cant really see it as it blends into the beak and head. Almost a Blackish burgundy. I hope that makes sense. Im very new to this.

    4 and 5: They have 4 toes.

    So the first chick's comb looks like the other cochin chicks, right?

    For 4&5 if they have 4 toes and are solid black like that they could be crevecours. I didnt think they had those in bantam though. Here is a link to the page on feathersite. http://feathersite.com/Poultry/CGA/Creve/BRKCreve.html

    Color or appearance? The other cochin you pointed out has a thicker, pale comb. More comb looking. I will try to get some pics in the morning posted.
    5 and 6 have some white on the breast. They aren't totally back.
