    New place opened up and they had chicks, but didn't have them marked as to what they were.

    3 of them are standard size and are probably 3 or 4 days old. Straight run.

    The other three are bantams, straight run, feathered legs, 3 or 4 days old

    Apparently the chicks came from Townline Hatchery, they confirmed the black and white chicks were barred rock and they gave me a list of the bantams in their mix so the 3 bantam chicks are going to be one of the following breeds.

    Bebe Reds
    Porcelains
    Millefleurs
    Golden and Silver Seabrights
    White Silkies
    Red Pyle, Brown
    Silver Duckwing Old English breeds

    Here a few more pictures

    The ones with the feathered feet are Mille Fleur d'Uccles. I have 2 of them from Townline and they are identical.

    Not at this age. You'll have to wait until the combs start to grow and redden up on the little roosters.
