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...)



#4 Grey chick. no leg feathers. small stature, very smooth body, almost dove like. clean grey legs.



#5 Yellow chick. I assume its a frizzle, but not frizzled (one in 4 isnt... so I got that PERFECT! Murphy hates me...) feathers on feet.



#6 chick Yellow with brown feathers white tips. Yellow on chest, with brown stripes . feathers on feet. well frizzled.



# 7 Yellow chick, with whiter feathers coming in. feathered feet, well frizzled.


and #8
Just a black chick, frizzled well, feathers on feet quite long ones.

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!

sonoran silkies: Thank you
every little bit helps!
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.
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!!
