Baby Bantam Chick Breed Ideas?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I just picked these 2 out from our local feed store from the assorted bantam group. I looked at their feathers and I'm 90% sure they're pullets and I'm hoping someone can give me a guess or an idea on what breeds they might be.

This one below has feathered legs







And this one has bare legs






Any help is greatly appreciated! TIA

You will have to wait until they feather in to get a good guess of the breed.

I'm guessing the feathered legs one will be a Cochin or D'Uccle.

The top one looks most like a black or mottled cochin to me, but I'm no expert. However, there are experts located in the "what breed/gender?" forum that might be able to help you out.

First chick looks like a partridge Cochin to me. Not sure about the other cutie.

Thanks! I'll post pics when they're a little bigger.
