    This is one of my OEG (3 wks old)and I cannot find a picture of a chick that looks like her. I was just wondering what color she will be. I also have a crele and BBR.

    I am also wondering if this is a RIR banty. It is very dark, and has a single comb so not a sebright. It has been the slowest of all my chicks to feather. It's about 3 weeks old here.

    Fuzzy wing pic, but you can see the markings.

    Looks like a Red Pyle or a Blue Red Splash/Sport

    Old English Game, I have the bantams. They are very sweet, though they are only 3 weeks old. [​IMG]

    The OEGB looks like it could be Red Pyle? And I still say the one is a RIR bantam.

    Yeah, I'm still going RIR on that one too. I love that he's so dark! I'm thinking he because it is taking him sooo long to feather. 3 weeks old and that is all he has. The OEG is the same age. I'm pretty sure that OEG is a girl, along with my BB red. I have a crele the same age who I know is a male; 3 weeks and a red comb and getting his red wattles in! He's a muffin. [​IMG]

    He's a banty, and I'm not sure what I'll do with him if it is a him. I only have 5 bantys, 3 OEG him and a polish. I know one OEG is a male and I think it'll be a while before I can even guess on the polish! I am starting to pile up with roos.
    I already have the 5 comet roos the hubby picked up...he thought the yellow were girls and the brown were boys. [​IMG] Yoi. I am really hoping my standard RIR is a pullet, took a chance and grabbed it out of the straight run bin at TSC while I was there getting my BA and WL pullets. Here's to hoping! [​IMG]
