    Hi -

    We have 5 6-week old chicks we got from mypetchicken. We got 2 red stars, and 3 'feather legged bantams' - We're pretty sure that 2 of the bantams are silkies, but not sure what the third is. We also wonder if she/he is a rooster (and when can i tell with the silkies?) The options they say are :
    •Mottled Cochins
    •Mille Fleur D'Uccles
    •Buff Brahma

    Batman-Annagram is the one I'm asking about. She's in the middle here - the 2 silkies are on the right, and one of the redstars is on the left. This shows her/his tail:

    Here's another with more of a closeup-

    Here she's in the middle between the 2 reds-

    So.. anyone know what we have here?

    thanks

    x3 You will love the brahma. Still and always will be my favorite breed of all my chickens.

    Thank you!!

    Looking at pictures of brahma's I should have figured that out myself!!! Now here's to hoping she's a she.

    She's actually the shyist of the chickens. She doesnt' like being handled. I'm hoping that will get better :)
