    Hey everyone! So my wife and I picked up these 2 baby chicks and I'm curious to know what breed you think they are. They were in the bantam bin but when I looked up the color I couldn't find anything for bantam with feathered feet.... so tell me what you think!? 20180326_153432.jpg 20180321_142136.jpg

    Hi, welcome to BYC! :frow

    Maybe a mottled Cochin?

    Can you tell what kind of comb yet?

    If you call the store they can tell you which hatchery they used and you can look at that hatchery web site to narrow down your possibilities.

    Cute babies! :love

    Second one is a Mottled Cochin. First one might be a Silver Laced Cochin, but its more likely a Mottled Cochin.

    They look like they maybe bantam cochins (bantam being a size type not a breed, there are regular sized and bantam sized chickens).

    Agree with above. Brahmas even come in a bantam size. But, these aren't bantam Brahmas. The colors are wrong for the standard breeds.

    Does the second chick have stripes on its back or not? That will determine whether its Silver Laced or Mottled.
