    I picked up a bunch of these little guys out of the assorted bantams bin. My immideate thought was that they were brahmas, but looking at their combs, they seem like some funky color of cochins.

    If they have beards and muffs, they're D'Uccles.

    I agree cochin. Another way to tell, brahmas have feathering on the outside of the legs only.
