    Hi

    May I please have some help/double check on breed/color for these babies? There are 13 bantams & 11 cresteds total, but a few that 'look' the same so I'll be posting in groups. I think these 3 are mille-fleur d'uccle. Though I don't see the white tipping on their baby wings...so my other thought is gold laced cochin. They're from the 6/29 hatch date for Ideal Poultry. Far as I know they don't have a gold laced d'uccle. At this age I'm not sure how strong the beards could/would be either....so those who know???? Am I right? I don't think they're blue mille fleur as there's too much of the black, but the lightest one does make me wonder...and hope. Thanks for any/all help!

    I tried to take the pics from right to left for the group & the same pic(s) in the same order.

    Without muffs they aren't d'uccles. I'm thinking possibly bantam cochins. What kind of comb do they have?

    Pyxis--Best as I can figure the comb is single. I'm not seeing the muff/beard, but not sure if it's always easily seen this young. Pic quality doesn't help. Am I right in thinking cochin as gold laced & d'uccle mille fleur...if the beard/muff were present that is.

    summerb123--thanks! I'm doing my best NOT to name them since I know I can't keep them all. I couldn't decide on what I wanted so I left it to chance.

    The muffs are always very apparent on d'uccles from the time they hatch, so yes, I think you're right in that they are gold laced cochins.

    Pyxis--Thank you. :) Haven't had a d'uccle from baby & my roo I have is actually mixed with cochin so he's a bit 'broader' in the body. They're still cute fuzzy butts!!!!
