    I have an estimate on this little girl. I think she might be a Belgian Bearded d'Uccle. However I still could be wrong.

    The first one looks like our Bantam when she was little. It took a while, but i was looking in a chicken book and saw a picture that looked exactly like our Bantam and was a Dutch Bantam. Yours might be too. I don't know what the second one could be.

    First looks like a dutch bantam currently. Second looks to be a buff brahma bantam. But very hard to tell with them being little fluff balls :)

    Second looks like it has puffy cheeks so I'll say d'Uccle. The first is probably OEGB since they are more common than Dutch.

    You are correct! I need to put my glasses on, I missed the fluffy cheeks.

    I had a little bantam that looked like the first one & here is the end result:

    How old is he and from where did you get him? I'm not 100% sure he's dutch but I don't know at what age they get the white earlobes.

    Good news is that first chick appears female, whether it is Dutch or OEGB.

    I know they're only a week max and Tractor Supply. The bantam are mixed so they don't specify breed.

    Sorry, the first part was to @sshrader.

    The dark eyeliner and bold markings of the first chick usually means girl.

    @SunHwaKwon that little roo is probably 12-16 ish weeks old, I believe. We got him from Atwoods which they use Ideal Poultry, was just guessing on the dutch blue cream light brown, he looks a lot like the pictures of them, except the earlobe?

    A picture of another one i found on byc.

    I have 21 varieties of OEGBs, with 19 of them coming from Ideal :) They are great in that they offer a very good assortment of bantams! Your little bird looks like a fawn gold duckwing OEGB to me. I see the light color of the feathers around the earhole but the actual earlobe isn't white and I would expect it to be more prominent. On my splash rosecomb, which is 10 weeks old, the white earlobe, which is similar to that of the Dutch, is much more prominent already. I have a fawn silver cockerel, 10 weeks old, and I'll take a look at his earlobes when I get home to see if they look similar to yours (light feathers around the earhole). The other thing is he definitely doesn't look blue and they don't have any fawn varieties of Dutch. He is certainly a pretty little bird and I have another cockerel that I have fingers crossed is exactly that same variety.
