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.
this black hen is gorgeous. She has a black comb, feathers, eyes, beak and legs. Her feathers shine purple in the sunlight.

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
this grey hen is so tiny compared to all the other chicks. She is sweet but gets picked on.
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.
