    I am trying to figure out what my 2 bantam chicks might be. Any ideas welcome.

    #1 looks like an Old English Game bantam or Golden Sebright, #2 look like a White Old English Game bantam.

    I disagree. They have feathered legs and look like bantam Brahma.

    The wings on Clairabelle seem to be growing in faster than Virginia's.

    I have 6 Standard Brahma in the brooder and my light (white) one is getting her wing feathers slower too. One of my Iowa blue chicks has enormous wings and is only a week old.
    I think this is normal.

    Viginia wing growth, Clairabelle's is pictured already.

    Totally normal for one week of age. The other chick has large wing feathers compared to age of bird. I think they will both be fine though.
