Hi! I was hoping someone might be able to tell me what breed these chicks are? And are they too young to be able to tell the sex?

The chipmunk stripes and the size make them look like duckwing Old English Game Bantams to me. If they are, then they can be (usually pretty accurately) color sexed at this age (females are darker and have longer eyeliner stripes), and pictures 2,5,6,7 look like pullets.

You'll know for certain when they start to get their true colors in--black breast feathers mean male, brown or silver mean female (but only in duckwings.)

Thank you so much :) I was told they were Americana' s but they dont look like any I have seen picture wise. These are very small and sleek.

They might be mixes of something. Where did you get them?

Definitely not Ameraucanas or Easter Eggers though--both have peacombs and dark legs. Ameraucanas have beards. All of those traits are dominant, so even a cross would be showing something.

They are from TSC and I have had them almost 3 weeks?
