    These are a mixed lot of Silkies that I bought (Black and Splash and I know which ones they are) and some of the chicks I got from McMurray in a batch of "Assorted Feather-Footed Bantams".

    This one is a frizzle Black Cochin right?

    And this one is a regular Black Cochin?

    Any ideas on this one? I thought Sultan because of the topknot but it only has 4 toes, not 5. Slate-colored legs.

    Buff Cochin or Brahma?

    Mille Fleur? Or something else?

    In the group shot, does anyone want to take a guess at the white one right-center without the topknot? Or the blue-grey ones?

    And this one had chipmunk stripes as a new chick. No clue.

    Thanks for any help! They are all darling of course and luckily healthy!!

    x2. Although I think one of the white ones in the second to last picture might be a Silkie.

    Yes I know the Silkies since I bought them from a local breeder. Thanks for all the help peeps! So the grey-blue ones ARE Porcelains?

    Now I will just have to let them all develop before I whittle my flock down to pullets only (& *maybe* one Rooster -- I love the Mille Fleur's coloring!).
