The Grass IS Greener on the Other Side

It's a sad day in Chickville. They've just realized that the grass really is greener on the other side.

Any guess as to what breed the centre chick is? I believe they're all about two months old. They are all bantams. The two outside chicks are blue Silkies.

And this last one is my single Brabanter chick. He/she is a cute little thing, with a black crest, spangled feathers and slate-blue legs.

Well, I haven't had them very long, so I'm hardly an expert. My part of the world tends to get very muddy in the winter (lots of rain), so I'm sure I'll be cursing their feathery feet come November.
