    Just got these 2 chicks at tractor supply yesterday and I'm trying to see if I can figure out what kind of bantam chicks they are....

    I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say bird number one is a Silver Duckwing Old English Game Pullet and the second is possibly a Cochin. I'm not seeing a topknot unless it's just the camera angle.

    The first chick looks like the SDW OEGB pullets I got from Orschelns as chicks and at 10 weeks. They are about 4 months old in these pictures. Wonderful little birds that make me laugh every day. The roosters think they are big birds in tiny packages. MMMMCORN.JPG

    Congratulations and welcome to BYC! Both of your babies are gorgeous!

    Silver duckwing and a white silkie. Sooo cute. Your duckwing will look like this somewhat. 0120191225-00.jpg 0122180759-01.jpg
