Any guesses on the breed of these adorable chickens?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Just a few days ago, we adopted four assorted bantam chicks from a feed store that are all about a week old. I am pretty sure that two of them are golden laced Sebrights, but I didn't know what the other two chicks could be. The unknown breed chicks are definitely different breeds. Does anyone have a guess for what either of their breeds are? Thank you!


This is chick # 1. She has four toes and feathered feet, and as I said before, is about a week old.


This is chick # 2. She also has four toes, but is clean legged, and I think that she is bearded and muffed, and of course is about a week old.

Top is likely a banatam Cochin. If it gets really yellow feet, that are feathered, and grows more mop like, it will be a Cochin.

 

I don't think it looks feathered enough on the legs to be a Booted Belgium D'Uccle, but if the legs are very heavily feathered, it may be that.

 

The bottom one may be a Blue D'Anver, but I'll let others with better expertise than myself have say on that.

I agree. You can post more pictures once the Cochin feathers out to determine color variety. smile.png
