    I am not sure what kind of bantam chicken these are. They are 9 weeks old now. My guess would be Partridge (or Golden Laced ) Wyandottes -- but Ideal doesn't list bantam Partridge Wyandottes on their website.

    I can't tell their comb type from the pics. The thing is, NONE of ideals offered bantams come in partridge. Maybe a dark cornish?

    Hmm, that's an idea -- Cornish. The comb looks like a pea comb.

    I agree, they could be Dark Cornish.

    Thanks, everyone! I never considered Dark Cornish.

    Did you find out what it is? I always thought a Speckled Sussex.
