    hi all, anyone care to take a guess?

    I've never had bantams before and ordered a surprise box from ideal.

    Look at my thread and see if any of yours look like mine did. I had a good variety. If you can't see my thread in my signature let me know.

    The first one looks to be a Cochin, I can't quite see the others.

    First one is probably a Partridge Cochin bantam. The other chicks are likely various varieties of Old English Game bantams.

    agree with the Cochin not sure on the others
    best guess is if you post again again once they're fully feathered [​IMG]
