    The dark brownish birds to the middle and back left are Partridge Cochins. The rest I can't really see well enough to distinguish. Could you take individual pictures of each bird's entire body?

    Also, you appear to have an accidental cockerel in the mix. He is the one directly in the center staring at the camera. It is young to be sure of sex yet, but I would be VERY surprised if that bird is female.

    Are these bantams?
    I see a lot of feathered feet.
    Very cute lot.
    The one in post 4 is a silver laced cochin.
    I agree with QueenMisha about the male in the lot.

    Yes, I agree, judging by the feathers feet I would guess a mix of Cochin bantams. Maybe post again when they are a little older and I might have better guesses. Good luck with these pretty girls!

    I'm fairly certain that one is a cockerel. We really do NEED each chick photographed separately - facing forward to show any comb development AND natural profile stance to check for other gender & breed features.
