    These chicks are bantam assortments I bought at tsc in april. Any idea what breed they are? They came from a hatchery in mount healthy ohio.
    [​IMG]this black hen is gorgeous. She has a black comb, feathers, eyes, beak and legs. Her feathers shine purple in the sunlight.

    [​IMG]the chick in the center is the cutest little chick I have ever owned. I have two of the type of hen behind it, I call them my snicker doodle hens
    [​IMG]this grey hen is so tiny compared to all the other chicks. She is sweet but gets picked on.
    [​IMG]the yellow one in the middle is the one I am curious about in this picture

    The black might be a japanese bantam?
    The one next to her is a silver sebright, and the next photo down is a gold sebright.

    I don't know about the others.

    They are cute.

    thank you! I do think I got a nice assortment. I wish I had a few more of that black hen, the yellow one and the little bearded speckled one though. I am thinking about breeding them with my little mille fleur/leghorn roo and see what I get.

    #3 is a Mille Fleur d'Uccle - and appears to be a pullet. Of which I am jealous. I have a roo of this breed. Very sweet and beautiful!

    # 5 could also be a d'Uccle, but I cannot tell if it has feathered legs or not. If not, then I am not sure - looks familiar, but I would have to look it up.

    #2 is a gold sebright

    That is all I know for sure. Pretty chicks! You got a very nice assortment!!!

    thank you! Yes number 5 has feathered legs. I am so happy to have a mille fleur hen! I have a mille fleur roo already that I thought was a hen when it was little (and thanks to him - a mille/leghorn roo and two pullet chickies!) I was already hoping to put that little mille hen in with my mille/leghorn chick because they are similar in age and I wanted to breed them, but I might have to put her with my older mille roo when she gets bigger.
