    So we were at Tractor Supply to and came home with chicks! It's not our first time raising them, but we picked three out of the bantam bin and I really have no clue what breeds they are. I'm hoping someone here can help! The yellow and black one is the only one with feathered feet, hoping it's a cochin.

    Does chick 1 have feathers down their legs?

    All 3 are definitely bantams, they're smaller than the standard sized chicks we got and we have raised bantam cochins from chicks before. I suspect chick 1 is a cochin, but it is a different color than I am use to. It has feathered feet. The other two I am clueless on! Thank you for your help :)

    #3 looks like a RIR bantam. They have almost every chicken breed in bantam size now LOL

    I too picked up 3 bantams (along with some others including a rainbow chick) from Tractor supply. One bantam i suspect somehow got tossed in the wrong bin! But i have two others that have feathered legs and wondering what they might be. One almost looks like it has a perm lol. First time in my adult life as a chicken mama. We had some as kids. Here is one today at 3 or so weeks, and some pictures of when we first brought them home.

    Chick 2: My research best points me to a Welsummer Golden Laced Wyandotte cross breed!

    Chick 1 could be a black cochin, but I think it could also be a Mottled D'uccle.

    Chick 2 is the biggest mystery I think! She/he is feathering out quickly, but i can't identify the little guy yet. It's the sweetest chick ever, likes being held!
    Maybe these pictures will help someone identify it. Thanks again!
