    I was wondering if anyone could help guess the breeds of these four chicks for me. Thanks! Sorry about the pictures being so big but I wanted everyone to be able to see the details.


    Chick one is almost all white with black spots.

    Chick two looks just like chick 1 but has more black

    #2[​IMG]


    Chick three I'm guessing is a bantam cochin but I'm not sure what color it is.

    Chick four is really pretty but I have no idea what it is

    Jap (Japanese) is a breed; mottled is a variety. Mottled has a white spot at the end of black feathers. The amount of white can vary, and can look neat and tidy or very "messy" looking.
