    Out of these 4 little bantams, 3 have feathered legs. I had a really hard time getting these pics!
    If I need more clear pics (the white one in particular), I will update with better pics when I can.
    For now, can you tell me what any of these look to be? Thank you!

    *Chick 1:
    This one is the only one without feathered legs.
    This one is ALSO the most difficult one to get a photo of!
    She/he doesn't like the camera, squirms to get away. lol

    Two and 3 look like Mille Fleur d'Uccles. Four could be a white d'Uccle or a white bantam cochin. Number one looks like it might be a Silver laced wyandotte. What kind of comb does it have?

    Thank you both!
    After googling both "Silver Sebright" and "Silver laced Wyandotte", i'm thinking Sebright! [​IMG]
    Though, there are VERY few pics of Sebright chicks, that I could find anyway!

    Quote:I'm really not sure about the comb.
    I get confused with full grown chicken's comb,
    let alone a chick this age!! lol
    Wonder if there is a comb chart somewhere.

    1 looks to be a Sebright
    2 D'Uccle
    3 and 4 D'Uccle or Cochin
    Looking at the comb of those two won't give you a clue to the breed since both breeds have single combs. The biggest difference between D'Uccle and Cochin as chicks is that the D'Uccle will have a beard/muffs but a Cochin doesn't. So, look for poofy cheeks. Once they develop a little more, the other differences will become obvious (vulture hocks and perky tail on D'Uccles, basketball shape and rounded tail for Cochins).
