    Looks like a mottled or a black Cochin and a partridge Cochin.

    Thank you! I was hoping for Cochins. Can you tell me what characteristics in these chicks tell you they are Cochins?

    They have feathered legs and are not five toed or have black skin or a black beak like silkies. Then there is also d’uccles that are feather footed, but they have different colors

    Now that we are two weeks out with more comb development, 2 is definitely Brahma. Thanks!
