    We got our order from Ideal today! 33 assorted and 25 assorted bantam cochins. There's a few of the cochins that are just GORGEOUS, a really dark brassy-brown color. I couldn't find the color on the website so figured I would ask here.

    Here's some pictures. We put all the chicks in together but these ones are Definitely from the cochin batch.

    Also got this lovely thing in the assorted bantam order. Any guesses on breed? also couldn't find a picture to match on the site.

    Thanks guys, There were some others that I thought were partridge but I guess they're a different color!

    Any guesses on the last bantam chick? it is Not a Cochin though :)

    Oooh, I got my order of bantam cochins today and bantam wyandottes from Ideal today. I took a bunch of chick pictures because I don't know what's what. At least I know that the dark brown ones are partridges. (Thanks!) I'll be posting my pictures on another thread so I don't hijack this one!
