    So I went crazy and bought all 14 straight run bantam chicks in the bantam bin. Most are cochins I believe. But I ended up with two clean legged chicks that are smaller than the others and I have no clue what they are.

    This one has dark legs and light feet. I've seen a few baby chicks that look similar but I don't know much about bantam breeds.

    This one I have no clue at all.

    I got some black and some white cochins but this color... I have no clue. I have 6 of the little guys.

    The last one might be a mille fleur d'uccle.

    The last one, they are the largest of the chicks, if that helps any. I got them at TSC, and they came in together so I assume they are all about the same age. The grey/orange chicks are largest, then the black feather legged chicks, then the white feather legged chicks, then the two clean legged chicks are just teeny tiny.

    I bought them all because I was hoping I could get at least 6 hens out of the 14 for my little bantam flock. I got the two clean legged chicks, 3 black feather legged, 3 white feather legged, and 6 of the grey/orange ones.

    Well it looks like the poor little black one isn't going to make it. Both of the clean legged babies were smaller and weaker than the rest last night, but the yellow one has perked up and is eating and drinking. The little black one I've been able to get to drink some water and vitamins, it pecked at the food a little... but I don't know if it's eating. It's very weak. I don't know if it will pull through or not. I may not ever know what it is.

    The last chick looks like a dark Brahma maybe? The other two could be Old English Games.

    Sorry to hear about the little black baby, hopefully it makes a turn for the better :fl

    The black one is sleeping in my sleeve. I have been holding it off and on all day. It seems to perk up and do better away from the other babies. They just knock this poor little guy around. It's so tiny and it's wings already have feathers and they're so long it has trouble moving around.

    Feather legged not silkies? Lol. I was assuming my feather legged light skinned bantams were cochins. I'm no good at knowing which chicks are what. That's why I'm here too. I have these three I assume are white cochin bantams.

    This last one seems to be a little spraddle legged.
