    I'd say Blue Cochin as well.

    I have been looking at combs for the past several days trying to learn how to identify them by comparing to my other chickens and to photos and diagrams. Well trying to learn anyway...just not for these specifically. So far, I am just not very good at it. I can't even tell on my bigger chicks except for the simplest types. Tried taking pictures of them but, that didn't work out so well either.
    So ... off I went to get even more and this time they are a bit better.


    OK, please seeif you can tell anything more from these.

    One chick's wing feathers are coming in darker than the other but it is also darker around the eyes.

    Assuming it's pure bred, Blue Cochin.
