    My daughter and I picked some bantam chicks up at TSC on Thursday. We believe the ones in the center photo with masks are D'anvers? Any guesses on the two with furry feet?

    Ah. I was wondering how to tell the difference from cochin to brahma. I was wondering if there's any chance the brown one would be a D'uccle? I had one once that I got as a young adult so I don't know what the chicks look like. She was a very sweet chicken.

    it doesnt appear to have any type of beard at all so that marks out any bearded breeds including d'uccle

    i should have pics of d'uccle chicks in one of my albums

    1. It looks like it has a beard and muffs to me-- mille fleur d'Uccle
    2. Quail Belgian d'Anvers
    3. Looks like a light Brahma b/c cochins usually have heavier leg feathering, but check the comb, might be a silver laced cochin. :)
