    Just got 6 Bantam chicks from TSC on Thursday. Four have feathered legs and two look like chipmunks. I am thinking booted bantams or D'uccles for the 4 and OEG or EE for the chipmunks. I know it is still early in the game but I really am curious!

    These are the feathered leg cuties. One has colored feathers while 2 in the foreground are plain feathers. You can see a chipmunk in the background.

    Better picture of the chipmunks.

    This is the lightest of the feathered legs the day we brought it home.

    Any help is appreciated. I am new to the Bantam breed.:)

    It's really hard to tell at this stage of the game but I would have to agree with the breeds you suspect especially the feather legged, I can see some muffs on the face as well which says it's probably a Bearded Belgium D'Uccle.

    Hi. The one with the stragly wing, do they have 5 toes and black skin? Could be a brown Willie. The one on top of the food looks like a Millie de fleur. The one with the stripe on the head looks like a rooster Americana Easter egger. That is exactly what my rooster Easter egger looked like. I was trying to post pics but was having a hard time. Google it

    No black legs or five toes. Possibly a frizzle? I really hope the chipmunk with green legs is not a roo but time will tell. I will post better pictures tonight.

    I agree with your guesses; the chipmunk ones do look like Old English Game, and the ones with feathered feet are likely D'uccles.

    Update on pictures. They are now 2 weeks old and enjoying a little outside time with the 3 week old Dixie Rainbows.
