Can anyone help ID my Chickens?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

 

Hi, 

 

I got these 2 young bantams a couple of weeks ago - can anyone help and tell me what breed they are? I think they're Brahma's but just wanted to double check. Their feet are usually more fluffy/feathery than this but they were out in the mud earlier! 

I think they're about 6 months old but I haven't had any eggs from them yet. They were very nervous to start with but are starting to come out of their shells now and seem really happy. 

Also, we were told that they were 2 pullets but I cant help but notice that one looks more like a rooster... what do you think?

It's hard to see with the wire, but they kinda look like a Mille fleur Cochin or something like that color to me.

The one does look a little roosterish, a closer picture would help. smile.png

I agree they're some type of Cochin. Brahmas have pea combs and are not so fluffy in the bum area ;).

Ok, thanks guys! I'm fairly new to this and don't know much about different breeds... Brahmas and Cochins look fairly similar to me but I do agree with the fluffy bum!! :lol:

 

Do you think they're both pullets?
