    I've been a sucker for chicks this year! Five bantams were left after a week at the store so I brought them home. Three are going to be a dark buff to light red, but two are different - the one not pictures is a tad darker on the head. It so odd to see this dark red with a yellow to white head, now with a few red feathers coming on. Any ideas? Thanks![​IMG]

    Does it have feathered legs? Red bantam Cochins are pretty common in the bantam bin at most feed stores.

    Duh, forgot the Cochin part - just hadn't seen that coloration? Yes, they are all Cochins
