    #2 looks like a Sicilian Buttercup. Does #3 have feathered legs?

    #2 may be a gold campine #1 can be a lot of things.what I did was go through the breed pages and look to see if I could find a match for my chicks. It was difficult because my Brahma wasn't coloured like a Brahma and I had a splash Andalusian.my other chicks were fairly easy

    I just know that #2 looks like a Dutch (my "namesake" breed) or an Old English Game Bantam. Are they bantams or standards?
