    I got 9 bantam babies yesterday from Tractor Supply. They’re roughly 5-7 days old from what I’ve been told (but they maybe seem a little closer to 1 1/2- 2 weeks based on their wing feathers). I think I have somewhere between 5-6 breeds. Let me know if you have any idea what they are! (I added in my guesses too).

    1- Cochin? 4 toes, feathered legs, wings appear frizzle

    2 and 3- OEGB? Number two has lighter coloring and number three is tiny at about .6 ounces (18 grams) and has grayer legs

    4 and 5- Golden Sebrights? 5 (the one on the right) is the definite leader of the pack, loud, and fearless. I wouldn’t be surprised if 5 turns out a roo.

    6 and 7- no clue here. 6 is little and likes to hop in my hand when I’m holding food.

    8 and 9- light yellow with a grayish tint and gray faces. 8 has pinkish/ yellow toes with gray up the legs and a darker face while 9 has less gray on the face and grayer legs.

    I agree with the seabrights and cochin but have no clue on the others. Going to rustle around in the TSC bantam bin myself tomorrow. Oh why do they have to be so cute?

    TSC is dangerous because of the cuteness! Hope yours has lots of good ones!

    Agree with your guesses. The little black one could be a Japanese bantam, not sure on the last one.

    I love your pics! Do you have any idea which hatchery they came from? Could you cal the store real quick and ask? It would help with determining the last two breeds.

    I definitely could but I’m sure they wouldn’t be much help! I had a few questions when I was there and they didn’t know anything. But I’ll try!

    My babies are now about 2 1/2 weeks and here are some updated cell phone pictures (they’re in a different order than the original post). Anyone have any updated guesses on breed or how many roosters I have? It’s still early for that but I have my suspicions already. I’ve been calling one of my Sebrights “Roo” since day one based on behavior alone. I know for sure Petunia is a bantam Cochin frizzle (not sure on color), Primrose and Roo are golden Sebrights, Poppy and Peony are OEGB (not positive on coloring), and I’m thinking Panda and Pansy are Japanese bantams. I have no clue on Posy and Petal but Petal is starting to get a few black feathers. My guesses on boys so far is 1, 2, 7, and 9 (but hoping for as few roos as possible since I will have to rehome).

    If you can wait till they are fully feathered out - about 8 weeks of age, I bet they could be ID'ed then and sexed. They are such beautiful chicks, would love to cuddle them.
