    Yes, female chicks/chickens are called pullets. And yes, bantams are a different "breed". They are smaller than regular chickens and lay smaller eggs. Id your question what breed they are?

    I can't really tell by the picture, do you have any that show the head and legs? A lot of chicks that are just sold as 'pullets' are usually a production breed.
