    Thanks all for the help [​IMG]; i was thinking maybe black breasted red old english game bantam for the Chipmunk striped one but was not sure hard to tell from pic on the web and had no clue about the black and white one was.

    The chick on the far left and the one in the back are Mottled Cochins.

    wow thanks for the pic. I can't weight to see s[he] when s[he] is feathered out. my daughter was hopeing she could show them in our local fair her older sister shows a goat. We have a small county fair we only had about 10 Chickens entered in it this fall; and i only wanted a couple so did not want to order offline they uslay have a eight chick min. So we bought theses from our feed store and i was hopeing that they were not mixed breeds cause the have to be pure breed to show.
