    Anyone have a guess as to what type of bantams these might be? They have a little bit of feathering on their legs. Mom was brown. I don't know what dad was.

    day old chicks are hard to determine breed as there are lots of breeds that can look identical as chicks. you may want to wait at least until they are 4 weeks old or even older.

    I you don't know what breed the rooster was then they are probably mixes. Do you have pictures of the hen?

    I got them from a farm. They just called them bantams...they did not know what kind they owned. The mom was brown...no feathers on her feet. The chicks have a little bit of feathers on their feet. Some chicks were white, some brown, some black. I will look into game birds. Thanks!
