    Hi everyone!

    My family just spontaneously adopted 4 baby chicks this afternoon. My mother knows our family loves raising chickens, so she volunteered us to take care of this lovely bunch. Can any of you help me identify them? I think they are bantams, but not sure what kind. I also think that one of them might be a rooster, this specific chick has a very prominent comb already. These photos were uploaded from my phone. I'll try and get better photos tomorrow.
    Thank you!

    The one in front in the first pic with the feathered feet looks like a cochin- in terms of coloring, it looks a lot like a silver pencilled.

    The one with the clearly defined black laced white feathers looks like a silver sebright.

    I can't see the feet on the fluffy black and white chick, but in body type, it looks like a mottled coshin. Feather feet would confirm that.

    The littlest one with the chipmunk stripes might be an old english, but honestly I'm less familiar with those.

    All of them are adorable. [​IMG]

    Thank you so much Chicken Hermit! You have been very helpful.
    I am super excited about these new batch of cute chicks that we got.
