    So I *think* I have 3 girls... and I *think* they are banties and not large fowl...

    Opinions?

    (I didn't bring the 4th chick home as he was an obvious roo: not very well feathered out, tiny red wattles, bigger darker comb, long legs)

    Photos are all of the same chick, the 3 are identical:

    for size comparison in the background is a sultan/silkie mix, 1.5 years old...

    OK thank you - they fit in the palm of my hand though, still so tiny!

    I'm happy they are LF!!

    Now... are they girls, do you think? [​IMG]

    They look like pullets right now...my roo already has a larger, redder comb by now...but, they are still a little young. Hopefully, someone else with more experience will chime in and give their opinion!
