    Hello!

    I ordered 25 of Ideal's Feather Legged Bantam Assortment. The assortment is supposed to include the following breeds:
    Brahmas, Cochins, Silkies and d'Uccles. I requested no Silkies but I got 6 of the 5 with Five toes. I'm really hoping I got no Silkies but I don't know what else they could be. I was thinking maybe I got a Faverolle or something but they aren't listed on their site as bantams. They do have LF Faverolles. Can you help me identify the breeds I got?

    Chick#1
    5 Toes Dark Feet.
    It has fluffy cheeks. Hope its's not Silkie..what do you think?

    Just got off the phone with Ideal. I sent Liz pictures of the chicks #1,7,8,9,13,14. She said she thinks chick #1 is definitely a Silkie but that #7,8,9,13,and 14 are Sultans. I'm okay with that. Do you guys agree? And what do you think about the other chicks?

    #1. Definitely a Silkie, and I'm thinking it's a Partridge.
    #2. Mille Fleur d'Uccle
    #3. Mille Fleur d'Uccle.
    #4. I'm thinking a Red Cochin?
    #5. Another Red Cochin?
    #7-9. Definitely more d'Uccles, perhaps White? (can't tell for sure with the lighting)
    #10. Cochin, perhaps White?
    #11-12. Cochins, and I'm thinking Mottled.
    #13-14. d'Uccles, maybe Porcelain?
    #15. Cochin, maybe Self Blue?
    #16. Can't see too well, does it have a beard and muffs? I'm thinking either Porcelain d'Uccle or Light Brahma, depending on whether it has a fluffy face or not.
    #17-19. Look like Silver Penciled Cochins to me.
    #20. Silver Laced Cochin.
    #21-22. I think Partridge Cochins.
    #23. Buff Brahma.
    #24. Honestly not sure....what type of comb does it have?
    #25. I'm thinking Brahma.
    Lovely babies! [​IMG]

    Awesome! Thanks for the feedback! Honestly i was really hoping for a lot of d'Uccles :] Question. Do D'Uccles sometimes have 5 toes? I'M asking because Liz at Ideal told me he ought they were Sultans. Which I found odd because they didn't have Sultans listed as part of their assorted feather legged bantam assortment.

    Most things hatchery folks say do sound odd. What you get is what you get. [​IMG]

    You're so welcome! [​IMG] I don't blame you at all - d'Uccles are some of my best birdies! I'm honestly not sure....mine only have 4 toes, so maybe it's within the genetics of Ideal's breeding stock? (I'm NOT good with this sort of stuff [​IMG]) One thing is for sure, those aren't Sultans, or Faverolles. [​IMG] I'm 99.99% sure they're d'Uccles.

    What I'd add to Alexandra 33:
    I think the first is a Red Silkie
    7-9 are Sultans, so are 13/14 they are just a little off color
    #16 is a Light Brahma
    17-19 Dark Brahma
    #24 is another Silver Laced Cochin
    The last 2 are both Buff Brahma

    Those are definitely Sultans, not d'Uccles... check their combs... Ideal does have them...

    Brahmas will have pea combs, Cochins will have single combs... d'Uccles have single combs, Sultans have v-shaped combs...
