Hi everyone

I am relatively new to raising chooks and I'd love some help with this question. What type of bantam are these? I was given some eggs for my lovely broody Silkie hen to sit on, but I don't know what they are. They're about 10 weeks old in these photos.

The other egg was larger, and the chick was yellow when it hatched.
It now looks like this (and is bigger than "Mum"!)

I'd appreciate any info you can give me.

Top ones colouring is very simular to one of my jungle fowl hens. Mind you she looks very simular to my partrige oeg (who looks like pic 2!) Could be oeg with something in her breeding to give her the red chest

Thanks Bantamboy. Yes, they are pretty good looking chooks. No sign of any crowing yet (fingers crossed!)
The two smallest OEGs seem to make a rather odd sound, almost like a honking. It's cute, especially when they get excited (usually when they see me coming with veges).
They love zucchini, mushrooms, silverbeet, strawberries, bean sprouts, corn on the cob and cauliflower.
I am thoroughly enjoying my first foray into chook friendship!

Yeah, the top one is blue-red OEG (not duckwing), the second is partridge OEG.
Don't know about the third, the yellow legs may suggest an American breed, or cross thereof??

They are very nice bird tho. I am getting some golden duckwing eggs sent up to me in a couple of months.


Cheers,

Josh
