    These are 4.5 week old Tractor Supply assorted bantams. Any ideas on breeds? The light one in the back has big clod hopper feathered feet grey colored. Light brahma or cochin maybe?

    The 4 that look a like I would say are OEGBs.

    Chicken Girl 1 is probably right. It looks like they have Silver Duckwing coloring, they remind me of little mini versions of our Silver Grey Dorking but many breeds come in that coloring like Japanese, Leghorn and Old English Game. I would look into those breeds physical characteristics and see which one matches up best with your chicks.

    Like a cream colored or light brown egg probably.

    I agree on the OEGB bantam for the silver/brown ones, but dutch can look similar, so you may have to wait and see if they develop white earlobes. Both breeds lay light cream colored eggs.

    The one in the back is probably a buff brahma, but it is always possible that the any feather footed hatchery bird is a cochin.

    Thanks. Cream would be nice. My LF lay every color except white (That will be remedied soon) so a little bird with different colored eggs (white or cream)would be nice.

    I'm thinking that the four similar looking chicks are Old English Game, and the other chick is probably a Buff Brahma. Brahmas lay brown eggs, while Old English Game typically lay white or cream colored eggs.
