    I got a couple of little bantys from the feed store the other day, along with my regular-size chicks. They couldn't tell me what kinds they were since they had gotten an assortment. They are three days old today. Can you help?

    Banty 1 is pale yellow and featherfooted. She has black feet and a tiny extra toe on each foot, so I suspect she's a silkie, but I can't be sure. If so, will she grow up to be buff, or white, or...?

    Banty 2 is slightly smaller and a sort of mottled grey, with a little white at the neck. Her feet are greyish-yellowy-green.

    Banty 2's feet aren't the same color as my Araucana's, they're more yellow. Here's a better pic of the lil' fuzzball's feet:

    No sure on chick number 2 but chick 1 I am pretty sure is a silkie. They are both really cute!

    The first one is definitely a Silkie. It will probably be white. The second one I'm not sure, but my first guess would be a Silver Sebright or something similar. [​IMG]

    I'd love to have a Sebright - hadn't thought of that. Thanks!

    OK, here are some more pics of our mystery chick - first at ten days, and then at three weeks. Any ideas now?

    She was so cute that I went back and got the only other chick I could find like her - below:

    Wow, melissastraka, that roo is one handsome fella!

    Sounds like the general consensus is sebrights. I have no idea whether they are girls or boys...I guess we will just have to wait and see.
