    These are 21 days old. I bought 2 seperate assortment packages. I got the standard bantam assortment. and the frizzle bantam assortment. four of each.

    They were straitrun.which means with my luck I got 8 roosters.

    here are the pics.

    #1 This is a light grey chick, no feathers on feet, grey legs, very light grey feathers, with some darker splatters.
    seems pretty tall, long legs..

    #2 this is a brown and black chick. the feathers are brown and black. with some tan around the ears. Thick yellow legs. and much bigger than the other bantams. Head is brown.

    # 3 this one is yellow, but is getting in brown wing feathers, with some black/dark brown and tan. yellow legs and feathers on the feet (it could be my other frizzle, but I dont know...)

    Most of those look like roos to me. The feather footed ones are
    Cochins of various colors. The rest are hard to tell.

    i'm pretty sure that 8 and maybe 3 are roosters, but i'm not sure. i've only learned how to tell the difference from this site!
    thats all i know.

    2, 3, 6 & 8 are roos (80% sure). The others are hens (60% sure).

    sonoran silkies: Thank you [​IMG] every little bit helps! [​IMG] LOL My kids and family are always asking "what kind are they?" and saying "chickens" doesnt amuse them....

    Purple chicken and the duck crew. So we are fairly certain # 3 is a roo.

    #'s 2, 6 and 8, are more than likely roosters. I guess it could be worse with my luck, so I wont whine too much.
    I'll be sure to keep that updated. [​IMG] thanks!

    Did you just get that from the combs? or is there something else I am missing?

    Thanks y'all!!

    and keep the guesses coming!!

    #1 could be a splash modern or OE

    #2 could be a golden laced wyandotte (bantam? look larger than a bantam chick)
