    I am so new to this so any help is sooooo appreciated! Bought 4 Barred Rocks, and 2 Bantams. I am dying to know what breed the Bantams are! The picture posted is Willy and as you can see he/she has a white face. The other chick is all black. They also had a lot of yellow/cream colored chicks in the same tub. Any ideas? Thank you :)[​IMG]

    He/she looks like a Belgian d'Anver or a Golden Sebright to me.

    It's a cute little Quail Belgian d'Anver. I have 4 just hatched in my incubator right now.

    How soon do you think we can determine sex?

    Not very soon, judging by mine. [​IMG] The little combs are pretty flat. I think I can pick out my little roosters at about 4 weeks because their combs are getting red. This is my first time raising this breed.

    OMG!! I cant stand it!! I have been poking around the site tho. I have seen where they talk about the tails on some breeds roo's. My babies are only a week old, but feathering by the hour. The black one Nelson, is getting tail feathers, where as Willy isnt! Curious indeed dont you think??? lol!!

    Chicks feather out a at different rates. Usually cockerels feather in slower than pullets, but there are plenty of chicks who don't follow that rule [​IMG]
