    Hello all,

    I am wondering what this little fella is. We believe that he is a bantam buff cochin cockerel, but would like some input. A little info... we purchased some Barred Rocks, Delawares, Blue Cochins, Sebrights, Ameracaunas, and 2 odd chicks from an individual. He was selling the chicks cheap as food for pet snakes, so we came to the rescue..lol. He had all of his chickens separated by breed in pens (which is how I decided what I wanted to get my chickens), but the chicks were all mixed up in the brooding room. One of the odd chicks looks extremely like a bantam buff cochin (which I'm happy with), but we just don't know for sure what this guy is. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    He looks like a D'Uccle mix. Does he have a beard or muffs? Could you post some side profile picks of him?

    Hello,
    He sure looks like Mille Fleur to me . I have a few and they get better color with age.[​IMG]

    He looks like a Booted Bantam with the Mille Fluer coloring. It doesnt have a beard so its not a d'Uccle and doesn't look like a cochin to me either.

    Hey ya'll...

    After checking out the "Breeds" section (just noticed it was there in all my looking around...lol), I am leaning more toward the booted bantam as the breed. The wattles are too big and I read that a D'Uccle has slate legs (Charger's legs are yellow). At any rate, I thank ya'll for helping out!
