    Our bantam Wyandotte hatched four eggs this year. Know trying to figure out sex and color.

    Chick 1 - The one on the left. The leghorn in the background like to jump the fense and hang out with the bantams...

    Chick 2

    Chick 3 - The black and white on the left. The red hen, in back is Mom, the white is Dad.

    Chick 4 - Is the biggest of all, we think roo.

    Wyandottes don't have feathered feet... I'm not terribly familiar with feather footed birds, though, so hopefully someone else can chime in and help you out. Brahmas have rose combs (like dad) and cochins have straight combs (like mom)... [​IMG]

    might be a mix of cochin and brahama or they could be pure cochins or pure brahamas

    Thank you to all for the breed clarification. Does anyone have a guess as to sex?

    I think chick #4 is the only cockerel... The barred one (#3) could possibly be one, but I'm on the fence with that one.

    If the White rooster in the background is the father of these chicks, then they are Wyandotte/Cochin crosses. He is a White Wyandotte Bantam and the hen is a Red Cochin.

    And this is why I love this forum. I truly want to thank everyone for their input on the breed of the parents. Are there any more guesses on the sex of the chicks?​

    Closer pictures would help a lot. Combs (not washed out) and from the top.
