    Posted this Tuesday but the pics weren't working, and then I think it just got too far down on the forum for anyone to see the post. Hopefully this time the imgur will work and I'll get some answers! :)

    We just added these five little gals to our brooder. The problem is, I'd like to know if anybody can tell me what breeds they might be? We bought them from a local woman, and she said at least three are RIR but I do NOT think she was right, so now I really don't know what I've got! Not that I mind...I think it's kind of fun to have a grab bag and see how they all different in behavior/egg laying, etc. Anyway, I'm sure many of you recognize these chicks! I would like to note that, as you can see in the pics, some of them have feathered legs! Also, they are about a week old. All thoughts welcome, and TIA!!

    Here is a link to view the chicks. https://imgur.com/a/xNxOG

    I really have no clue. Look like bantams to me but I know virtually nothing.
