    I bought 6 bantams from a local feed store several weeks ago. I couldn't resist as most of you understand. I'm having trouble identifying what 2 different breeds I have. Hope someone out there can help.

    Number one is definitely looking Polish to me. Maybe Gold-laced? The second pic looks like Rhode Island Reds (RIR). I am definitely not the most experienced here and I CAN be wrong -- despite what I tell me DH!

    Number one is quite svelt! A keeper!

    The first one is a polish. Am I seeing feathered feet on the others or are my eyes that old? If so, I'm thinkin' cochin.

    Red cochins, and a golden polish. Pretty birds. The cochin in the middle, in case you didn't already know, is a cockerel.
