Cochins, Silkies, Bantams... Oh My!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

What are they?

 

I got a 11 bantams from TSC last week. All but one is feather footed. I am almost 100% certain that 3 are Silkies, the clean legged is either EEB or OEGB, the rest I think are cochins but I am not sure which types.

 The Silkies

 

 The feather footed babies (Brown in corner is likely a partridge cochin. Red is likely a red cochin.)

 

Feather footed babies minus Red and Brown.

Cute chickies!

 

This is just a guess but the feather footed ones are possibly silver penciled and the very dark one could be a black mottled.

You are correct about the top three being White Silkies. Out of the feathered leg bantams, the black one is probably a Black Cochin. The red ones a Red Cochin. The brown one looks to be a Partridge Cochin. The white and grey one looks like a Light Brahma Bantam. The others are either Silver Pencilled Cochins or Dark Brahmas. Do they have pea combs which look like little bumps, or single combs which look like little spikes? smile.png

3 have single combs and 2 have pea combs. Red = pea comb,  Blue = single comb

 

The black one in the other picture and the brown faced one in this photo are the same chick from a different angle.

Then the ones with pea combs are Brahmas. Can you get individual pictures of the others?
