    I bought two bantam straight run chicks and they are now about 3 weeks old. What breed are they?[​IMG]

    They are adorable!

    I'm not sure about the breed. The one has the coloration "penciled", and the comb appears to be like that of a wyandottes. Does the other have feathered feet? If it has a single comb is it likely a Golden-laced Sebright.

    Neither have feathered feet, and I was mostly certain the golden one is a golden sebright :3 but the one in front is giving me the most trouble! Both have little to no comb as of yet. Just a straight line lol. They are super adorable and I'm really banking on them both being hens. I'd hate to have to give one up because it turned out to be a rooster

    The black and white one looks like an Easter Egger. If it's a pullet it will probably look like this hen when full grown:

    I would be okay with that. Lol. I'm not fully sure if it is a bantam, but if it is, will it still lay the colored eggs??

    She/he looks like a large fowl EE to me but it's hard to tell. Yes, if it's a pullet there is a good chance you will get blue/green eggs.
