    The guy I got these from didn't seem to have any clue what he was talking about, all I know is they're bantams, and 3 are feather-footed. Any clue what they are? And is the all black one a roo maybe?

    The roo looks like a black jap to me. The others look like a barred cochin and either red or buff cochins.

    The little black one with the spot on his head looks JUST like 2 of my mystery Bantams!! I posted my thread about them in this forum as well. The only difference is...mine don't have feathered feet. I'm assuming that even at a week old, they would have feathered feet if they were a feather-footed chicken. I hope this will help me figure out what my chicks are too!

    He is a cutie! I agree that he looks like a little Japanese bantam.

    Sparrow, if yours looks like the barred cochin (black feather legged chick with yellow head spot) except with clean legs, then yours is either a barred rock (straight comb) or dominique (rose comb). [​IMG]

    I agree with flyingmonkeypoop on the breeds. (japanese & cochins)

    ^^Thanks for the suggestions, ChicknGurl. I had no idea Barred Rocks/Dominiques had Bantam versions. Maybe that's what they are! It's such a mystery. :eek:
