    I got a dozen eggs for my broody hen to hatch, most of them were silkies and a few were "mystery" eggs as I forget what they were supposed to be. So now everyone is around 4 months old and I'm just wondering what these two little tiny chickens are. I've got a little pullet and a cockerel. I thought maybe they were either OEGBs or Seramas ... or maybe they are little mixes? Please give me your opinions on these guys ... they are so cute and little [​IMG]

    Thanks in advance!



    Also, what would you say this guy is? When he was a chick everyone thought he was a Partridge Cochin ... now I'm not so sure?

    Im not sure on breeds. But the hens in the first 2 photos have neat looking tails [​IMG] not sure about being seramas..the tails should match the height of the head I think, when they do the pose and should have a short curved back.
    All those birds are pretty though [​IMG]

    I would bet (based on the baby pictures) that the two little ones are Seramas. The bigger one looks to be a cross between a Partridge Cochin and a Silver Laced Wyandotte.

    I would guess Serama on the two little ones. Aren't OEGs supposed to have pinkish-white legs? The big guy looks like a SLW/Cochin cross. Could be a Brahma/SLW cross too but that rose comb is very well defined.

    akcountrygrrl that's what I thought because of the yellow legs. Maybe they're a mix between the two? I really have no idea, all the chicks in that picture were all hatched under my broody hen ... including the bigger rooster. They're all the same age, and those two are soooo much smaller than all the rest. They're even half the size of the silkies, and the silkies are practically the same size as the "momma" who hatched them out and she's a little bantam brahma! They were the smallest chicks I've ever seen and the eggs were pretty small too, but I don't remember the woman I got them from saying anything about seramas ... so I guess they could just be little tiny mutts??! Thanks for the guesses everyone!
