    Just got these 6 yesterday. Sorry in advance for the poor pictures; not the best camera in the world.

    Can you help me identify them? I'm hoping the chipmunks are OEGB. The other two I got just cause they looked cool and I wanted to see what they turned out to be! [​IMG]

    The black/yellow one is very fluffy. He seems to almost have sideburns and a mohawk [​IMG]
    The other almost-white baby has gray markings on the wings and tail only.
    Any guesses?

    Are these bantam or standard size?

    The chipmunk ones could be Easter Egger or Brown Leghorn, they may also be OEGB if they are definitely bantams.

    The other yellow and black one could be an Australorp. If it is standard size

    the lightish one with the gray wings looks a lot like blue andalusian (white egg layer, but standard sized)

    The chipmunk ones look like the oegb I hatched two days ago,


    and the yellow/black/white one ...I had a couple that type of color, with the white spot on the wing end up being a pure black cochin (but mine had feathers on the legs)

    These are all bantams [​IMG] I'm almost 100% certain at least one of the chipmonks is a OEGB, mainly because I've gotten these before and that's what they turned out the be. It's mostly the other two that have me puzzled. Never seen chicks like them before, even at TSC.

    Took a closer look today. The first chick pictured definitely does have a bit of a yellow poof on top of his head, and there appear to be some small ear muffs. He has 5 toes as well, if that helps. Those white flight feathers are starting to come in as well. All the others have the normal 4 toes.
    Any more suggestions?

    There are only five 5-toed breeds: silkie, sultan, houdan, faverolle and dorking. The 1st three have crests. Your baby looks just like the baby houdan chicks on feathersite.

    Houdan, EEs, OEGBs,

    If they were standards I'd say Ancona, EEs/B.Leghorn, Dellies.

    Quote:Thank you! I agree, they do look just like them [​IMG]
    I didn't know there were only 5 breeds with 5 toes. I've had a few with 5 toes before, but they looked like none of those, so I guess they were mixes. But I guess that's what I got for getting those chicks from our rinky-dink local feed store. I'm glad TSC has chicks in the store again!
