    Yesterday we went to a chickenstock where I took some bantam cochin chicks. My daughter put them away and now they're mixed up with the standard sized chicks and they all look alike and they're the same age. Any way I can tell them apart?

    Are both the bantams and standards Cochins? If just the bantams are Cochins, look for the feathered feet.

    But really, if they are the same age, the bantams should be less than half the size of the standards. If not, I would say you either have all bantams or all standards.
