    We purchased these four little bantams for $1 each from the local seed and feed yesterday. They were trying to get rid of the last of their stock. The sign said "bantam araucanas" but after further research I think they might be bantam ameraucanas. Or maybe something else all together. What do you think? My husband thinks they look like "regular old birds."

    I'm relatively new to chicken keeping and these are our first bantams. Any idea about how old they are? They seem to be about the size of our regular hens when they were just a few days old, but they seem to be fully feathered - or close to it.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the feedback. Easter egg chicks they are. Any thoughts to how old they might be?

    I would guess about 2 weeks.
